【Course Objectives】

This seminar course will explore stories and forms of film portraying gender and globalization from national and transnational perspectives. Informed by theoretical readings and major film reviews, this course will consider an imperative question: How can film promote gender equality in global society? To answer the question, we will examine narratives and visual images of gender, sexuality and transnationalism in the context of class, ethnicity and national identity.

【Course Contents】

This course will address the role of film as a significant force of cultural globalization, by discussing the notions of gender and sexuality, local/national/transnational images of femininities and masculinities and the relationship between gender inequality and global concerns, such as war and colonialism, poverty, immigration, international marriages and environmental issues. Each week, we will conduct a textual analysis of a film within its historical, political and social contexts, based on a discussion of related theoretical readings.
