LANG 350 - International Women’s Cinema

(3 credits)
This course explores international women’s cinema that spans a spectrum of cultures, races, ethnicities, sexualities, languages and visual aesthetics. The diverse ways in which women directors enlist cinematic art to articulate and debate such issues as differences between non-Western and Western cultural representations and perceptions of female bodies and body image; explorations of gender, race, and class; varying notions about feminism within non-Western and Western cultures; experimental, documentary, and feature film techniques that challenge cinematic patriarchalism and racism; globalization, technology, and women’s lives in the new millennium; and more will be explored.
