PO 360 - Film and Politics


The cultural and political power of film is unique. Films reinforce or break stereotypes, rewrite history, encourage dissent, or enforce conformity.  This course will focus on politically relevant films addressing race, gender, and sexuality from China, India, France, Latin America, and the U.S.   We seek to understand the political context of each and its contributions to ongoing debates about citizenship, the nation, and belonging as historical and in terms of the intersecting politics of race, gender, and sexuality.
