UCLA Center for the Study of Women
Porn, Pedagogy, and the Passing of an Icon
- Author(s): Ward, Anna E.
- et al.
The course, “Pornography in Contemporary U.S. Culture,” was offered as a senior capstone seminar by the Department of Women’s Studies. As the instructor, Ward approached the course with the explicit purpose of offering Women’s Studies students a perspective on pornography that they rarely encounter in our curriculum at UCLA, a perspective firmly rooted in both media studies and sexuality studies, but also contextualized within the field of Women’s Studies itself.
