ARTH692 - WOMEN AND FILM

This course will introduce students to the work of mainstream and experimental women filmmakers from around the world. As we examine films from the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries, we will consider how a counter-history of women's cinema alters more conventional versions of the medium's history, whether gender is a useful category of analysis for film studies, how women filmmakers have responded to each others' work, and how other markers of identity like race and class complicate utopian narratives of "sisters in cinema."
