WSTC22H3 Gender and Film

This course examines the representations of gender in narrative, documentary and experimental films by a selection of global directors from a social, critical and historical perspective. We will analyse and engage with the filmic representations of race, class and sexual orientation, and explore how traditional and non-traditional cinema can challenge or perpetuate normative notions of gender.
