    A Gendered Gaze: Media Impacts on Perceptions of Gender and Sexuality explores the influence of media on audiences’ conception of gender and sexuality. In particular, this book examines the ways new media impact how people see themselves and others.

    The text is organized into five chapters which address subjects such as identity, cultural representation, whiteness and the othering of ethnic minorities, the construction of narrative and character, representation of sex and gender, and the contemporary culture exchange. Specific topics include social and institutional modeling, the politics of representation, the male/female gaze, filmic representations of gender, the politics of social media, and the ability of social media to construct and control our own narratives and media identities.

    A Gendered Gaze is most appropriate for college courses that discuss the various influences on perceptions of self and others in terms of gender, sexuality, and identity. It is also appropriate for classes focusing on the media and media impacts.
