Race, Gender, and American Film
Delve into the meaning behind the art of film
This course will explore the confluence of race and gender in American film. We will interrogate the various ways in which race and gender are constructed in film as a response to, and a reflection of, the cultural and historical realities of the American experience. Drawing on feminist theory and critical race studies we will explore issues related to identity politics, audience response, and cinematic language.
