Notes
Topic: Films of Resistance: Cultures of Resistance and Subversion in Film This course provides a critical examination of cultural struggle through cinema. Popular media, and cinema in particular, is often a medium of the dominant culture, but this also makes film a powerful tool for resistance. Films are artifacts documenting cultural struggle, change, and shifting ideologies. This course will examine films that reflect moments of cultural instability and shift in terms of race, class, sexuality, and gender. Students will gain the skills to critically analyze film and connect films within a larger context of culture and cultural change. This is a fully online course. It requires reliable internet access and computer literacy; and the ability to self-manage independent learning assignments according to deadlines. In place of classroom activities, online work may include independent mastery assignments, discussion boards, videos with quizzes, writing assignments, and other active learning experiences. Students are responsible for completing these online learning experiences by the specified deadlines and in accordance with instructor requirements.
