FILM 110  Culture & Gender in Film

  The aim of this course is to introduce you to contemporary theories of

  American culture, through the lens of the popular medium of film.

  Throughout the semester we will study the roles of male and female

  spectators, as well as the peripheral viewing positions that emerge through

  queer studies, bisexual, gay, and lesbian films, and transgender cinema.

  We will also explore the diverse perspectives of films by, for, and about

  other marginalized identities such as Native Americans, African

  Americans, Latin and Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, and

  “foreigners”.  Copies of the current syllabus are available here.
