Students develop an understanding of the idea of self-presentation in all its many forms. Examples drawn from the realms of art, social media and pop culture enable them to discuss stereotypes and build up a critical attitude to clichés and body shaming. Students will also look at the role of algorithms and eye tracking. This will be accompanied by discussions of image-related questions and social issues and the fostering of an autonomous approach.
