Women, Cinema, and Gender
Summer 2014 quarter
This four credit course is designed to introduce students to basic film theory and analysis through screenings, readings, seminar and critical writing. We will focus on films by and about women, working with feminist film theory as we explore the politics of representation in relation to gender. Historically, the Classical Hollywood Narrative became the dominant form of popular visual entertainment. We will briefly examine the characteristics of this form and its ideological implications before moving into an analysis of alternative representational strategies, including documentary, experimental, and abstract film forms.
