Gender Through Comic Books Free Online College Course

February 19, 2013

The Canvas Network, which focuses on open online learning, has recently announced a new free course that I think you’ll be into.  A Massive Open Online Course focused on Gender Roles in Comic Books!

The course, led by Christina Blanch of Ball State University, uses a study of comic books incorporating highly interactive video lectures, online discussions between students, and real-time socially driven interviews. Interviews with the comic industry’s biggest names such as Terry Moore, Brian K Vaughan, Mark Waid, as well as others address questions of gender representations and constructions involving both men and women.

The course runs Apr 2, 2013 to May 10, 2013, and will include video lectures, interactive discussion with other students, as well as coursework done in groups and peer reviewed. I just signed up! You should, too. This looks like a blast.
