Course Description

This seminar provides students with a broad survey of theories and methodologies used in critical analyses of gender and sexuality in film, focusing in particular on cinematic representation, spectatorship, and authorship. Taking a somewhat chronological approach, we will consider the development of feminist film theory since the 1970s, the rise of gay/lesbian/queer film scholarship, and the recent focus on masculinity in cinema studies.
