WGS341L-01A Gender and Film: Multidisciplinary Perspectives (with Carney M Maley)

WGS341L-01A Gender and Film: Multidisciplinary Perspectives (with Carney M Maley)

This course is designed to encourage multidisciplinary analysis of gender, cultural representations, and film in the 20th and early 21st century. Among the topics that students will explore are: ethnographic film and gendered practices in ethnographic filmmaking; how ideologies of gender, "race," and class are constructed, disseminated, and normalized through film (documentary as well as "popular" film); Indigenous women and filmmaking in North America; femininities, masculinities, and power in the "horror film" genre; human rights film and filmmaking as activism. Students will view films made in diverse locations and reflecting multiple historical, political, and cultural perspectives and will explore the intellectual, political and social significance of film in their own lives. ENGL 341L and WGS 341L and CINE 341L are the same course.

Crosslisted: CINE 341L and ENGL 341L and WGS 341L are the same course.

Remote: Courses that are typically taught face-to-face will be delivered remotely this summer. As opposed to an online course, which requires no live sessions and allows a student to study anytime, a remote course is either: (1) a course with live class sessions delivered via web conferencing, or (2) a course with pre-recorded lectures that a student can watch anytime, typically paired with live discussions sessions. For more detail on the remote format of a specific course, contact the instructor.
