New Core: Fulfills 3 credits in Area of Knowledge IV.
This class explores the phenomenon of "girl culture" as it has been represented in recent mainstream cinema in the United States. It examines the unlikely feminist heroines of "fin de millenium" popular film, paying particular attention to issues of race, class, ethnicity, education, sexuality, psychology, and geography. The course analyzes the notion of "Third Wave" feminist popular cultural production, in order to empower students to question dominant stereotypes, and to critique prevailing conceptions of feminist agency and political efficacy.
Course Rotation: NYC: Fall PLV: TBA.
