This course examines film through the lens of gender studies. Both film studies and gender studies will be covered at an introductory level, with additional support and opportunities provided to students with previous experience. We will focus primarily on women performers, producers, and directors, but we will address their work through an intersectional lens, with attention paid to elements of race and sexuality, as well as to non-binary gender identities. 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.

This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in: Media arts, communications, education, activism
