At this point you have learned about four different theoretical paradigms we use to understand communication. One problem with these approaches is they often lack an explicit critique of the status quo of communication. Put another way, they serve as a general approach to understand communication norms rather than challenge them. We all realize that there are communication realities in the world that are hurtful and oppressive to particular people, and that there are people in the world that use communication to serve their own needs and interests. How do we bring these communicative practices to light and work to change communication practices that are hurtful? Byron Hurt is a modern theorist who uses film to critique how sexism impacts both men and women in our society. Critical Theories challenge the status quo of communication contexts, looking for alternatives to those forms of oppressive communication.
Critical International Political Economy pp Cite as. Likewise, it does not make visible the fact that in the paid workplace, as in the household, women are assigned to, indeed ghettoized in, distinctively feminine, service-oriented and often sexualized occupations. Finally, it fails to focalize the fact that in both spheres women are subordinated to men. Unable to display preview. Download preview PDF. Skip to main content.
This module will consider some of the most important debates and trends in feminist literary theory over the last few decades. The module will consider the intersections of academic and popular, intellectual and activist dimensions of feminist literary theory; we also place emphasis on the articulation of feminist literary practice with representations of race, sexuality and class. Questions of reading practices, genre and canon-formation, as well as those of artistic expressions in response to the collaboration and conflict engaged between 'western', 'multicultural' and 'third world' feminisms will be some of the key themes that the module will explore. We will examine the 'use' and 'abuse' of writing by black women in the formation of feminist literary theory - the way in which white feminist critics have recuperated black authored texts and have avoided the interrogation of whiteness. We will also address the question of feminist literary theory's relationship with cultural and social theory - Marxism and psychoanalysis were from the outset of the period we are engaged with crucial interlocutors of feminist thought and feminism's encounter with literature was a particularly rich site of these encounters. We will think about the historicity of feminism's engagement with literature and culture - does it make sense to bring concepts generated by feminism into dialogue with texts or practices chronologically or politically outside of the 'enlightenment' or 'modernity'? As we will see, the demarcation between 'literary' and 'theoretical' texts has always been unstable within feminism and the module sets up a dialogue between the two categories.

Although both feminist theory and critical theory focus on social and economic inequalities, and both have an agenda of promoting system change, these fields of inquiry have developed separately and seldom draw on each other's work. This paper notes areas of common interest.

Barbara B. This article examines text and consumer responses from the perspective of postmodern feminist literary criticism. It uses a feminist framework to incorporate the issues of advertising as gendered text and consumer responses as gendered readings into consumer research. Next, this method is demonstrated in a feminist reading of two advertising figures—the Marlboro Man and the Dakota Woman. Then, the article presents a feminist perspective on gendered reading—different male and female reading styles relevant to consumers and ads.
Following the line of this epistemological turn away from language, we invite different interpretations of affect and seek interdisciplinary approaches that examine connections between affect and feminist politics. We are interested in examining the relation between meaning and sense, representation and event, perception and experience, capital and objects of emotions, in order to try and answer the question about whether a focus on affect, not only as a force manifested on a personal level as emotion , but as an impersonal intensity "of what the human shares with everything it is not" Brian Massumi , can lead to reexamination of our views on feminist theory and politics. If feminism's "killjoy" capacity exposes "the bad feelings that get hidden, displaced, or negated under public signs of joy" Sara Ahmed , what are the dangers of turning the politics of happiness into a politics of anger, as Ahmed suggests?
Marxist feminism is a philosophical variant of feminism that incorporates and extends Marxist theory. Marxist feminism analyzes the ways in which women are exploited through capitalism and the individual ownership of private property. Because of its foundation in historical materialism , Marxist feminism is similar to socialist feminism and, to a greater degree, materialist feminism.

Разные лаборатории приводят разные цифры. ГЛАВА 127 Собравшиеся на подиуме тотчас замолчали, словно наблюдая за солнечным затмением или извержением вулкана - событиями, над которыми у них не было ни малейшей власти. Время, казалось, замедлило свой бег. - Мы терпим бедствие! - крикнул техник. - Все линии устремились к центру. С левого экрана в камеру неотрывно смотрели Дэвид и агенты Смит и Колиандер.
Ему сразу же стало ясно, что высокое положение в тридцать восемь лет в АНБ нельзя получить за красивые глаза: Сьюзан Флетчер оказалась одной из умнейших женщин, каких ему только доводилось встречать. Обсуждая шифры и ключи к ним, он поймал себя на мысли, что изо всех сил пытается соответствовать ее уровню, - для него это ощущение было новым и оттого волнующим. Час спустя, когда Беккер уже окончательно опоздал на свой матч, а Сьюзан откровенно проигнорировала трехстраничное послание на интеркоме, оба вдруг расхохотались. И вот эти два интеллектуала, казалось бы, неспособные на вспышки иррациональной влюбленности, обсуждая проблемы лингвистической морфологии и числовые генераторы, внезапно почувствовали себя подростками, и все вокруг окрасилось в радужные тона. Сьюзан ни слова не сказала об истинной причине своей беседы с Дэвидом Беккером - о том, что она собиралась предложить ему место в Отделе азиатской криптографии.
