    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course has allowed me to examine metaphorical monsters in relation to media, sports, and politics. The course focuses on how marginalized groups in society are viewed as monsters due to their biological traits such as race, gender, or sexuality. The more they rebel from this monstrous label, the further stigmatized they become. Professor Phillips also has experience working in the entertainment industry, so not only is he an amazing storyteller, but he also did an excellent job in explaining how pop culture relates to monstrosity. The chapter readings are interesting as well.

    Course highlights:

    In terms of metaphorical monsters, the biggest takeaway from this course is society determines who the monsters are. It is like when children are bullied in school; most people think they are perfectly normal and do not think there is anything wrong with them until others point out their flaws. Monsters are not born, they are created and ostracized mainly because people fear the unknown. Once that monstrous label has been placed on someone, it is almost impossible to escape unless the system of inequality is eliminated. The class presentations and chapter readings are helpful towards providing a better understanding of societal monstrosity.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The papers assigned can take some time and effort. Be sure to plan ahead and created outlines before your draft. Something that was helpful for me was using documentaries on Netflix to use as some of my sources.
