WGST 301 - Filming American Feminisms

4 credits
Through examination of documentary and fiction films, this course will explore the development of thinking about women, gender, and feminism in the United States after 1900.  We’ll think simultaneously about the evolution of feminist thought in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and about how film has engaged with, represented, supported, disseminated, and critiqued those developing ideas.  Readings in feminist theory of the period will be put in dialogue with a wide range of films from silents to Hollywood blockbusters to independents and documentaries made with explicitly feminist purposes. Equivalent Course:ENGH 324   Offered fall semester in alternate years. CLA-Writing Intensive, CLA-Diversity US, CLA-Breadth Interdisciplinary
