Gender & Sexuality in Film
WMST 498-01 4 credits
This course investigates various constructions of sexuality within cinematic representations of intimacy, desire and the body. Beginning with a historical approach to representations of love, sex and gender roles, students will develop media literacy skills for critically engaging with dominant cultural stories and images that communicate changing understandings of sexuality, gender, class, race, and nation. How does the dominant cultural imagination interact with our perceptions of self, other and sexual relations?
