Department Section Description: 

This course will examine feminist film criticism from multiple theoretical perspectives and diverse geo-political contexts. We will study how feminists have not only critiqued media and its representations of gender but also how the institution of cinema and media itself is gendered in terms of its political economy, production culture and infrastructure. We will go beyond scholarly approaches to feminist film criticism to suggest that feminist media production is itself a site of feminist film criticism.
