ENGH 324 - 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 after 1900. The course will think simultaneously about the evolution of feminist thought in the twentieth century 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. Prerequisite: ENGH 150  or WGST 101   Equivalent Course: WGST 301   CLA-Breadth/Interdisciplinary, CLA-Diversity US, CLA-Writing Intensive
