Film and Gender

Summer 2012 quarter

Elizabeth Williamson English literature, theater studies
Fields of Study
gender and women's studies and media studies

This course examines film through the lens of gender studies. Both topics will be covered at an introductory level, with additional support provided to students with previous experience. We will focus primarily on female-identified performers, producers, and directors working within the American mainstream and talk about how their work responds to existing conventions and constraints. There will be one screening with lecture every week; students will watch additional films at home and post weekly screening reports. More advanced students may pursue a research or screenwriting project in lieu of weekly reports.
