Description
This course examines representations of gender in cinema. Students will consider the continuum of gendered identities; masculine and feminine, and the history of gendered roles and expectations as they have shifted over time in conjunction with popular culture. We will explore gendered representations as potential sites of influence that attempt to reflect and reiterate gender norms within the broader scope of social mores and attitudes. Two central aims of this course are to foster critical reading and thinking about gender identities as they function within increasingly mediated venues for communication. Of equal value, we will investigate the ways in which individuals have resisted institutional or social norms, striving to push for progression and change.
