This course explores theories and methods at the intersection of film and media and gender and sexuality studies, including representation and self-representation, historiography and canon formation, intersectionality and transnational politics, gender performativity and sexual dissidence, cultural production and critique. Required weekly screenings feature films and programs from a range of historical periods, national production contexts, and styles: mainstream and independent, narrative, documentary, video art, and experimental. Readings in feminist film theory will address questions of authorship and aesthetics, spectatorship and reception, image and gaze, and current media politics.
