In this course, students will study the way American films have represented race, class, gender, sexuality and ability throughout history. Students will critically evaluate various representations of diversity within American film. Additionally, they will gain insight into the ways in which cinematic images of different minority groups shape the way in which people are perceived in everyday life. Instruction will emphasize the acquisition of analytical skills relevant to film and cultural studies.
