ENGL 445. Sexuality in Film. 3 Hours.
What is sexuality? Is it a feeling, gender, practice, activity, behavior, orientation, or way of life? Why is sexuality so difficult to pin down, and at the same time, how has it come to signify something that is central to our sense of self? In this interdisciplinary course, we will explore theories of sexuality in relation to cinematic representations and consider how film theorists have responded to questions of gender and sexuality. This course will also serve as a broad introduction to the study of film. Category E.
