Expanded Course Description
This course introduces students to critical thinking about the historical and economic factors influencing film, media, and cultural production. Unconventional textual and contextual dynamics, understood as queer history, are the focus of the course. The framework we explore draws on critical approaches to race, ethnicity, class, education, and ability. Our goals are to discuss the power relations and unpredictable signifying practices involved in taste stratification and family norms; erotic possibilities and gender differentiation; art, marketing, advertising, and genre; capitalism, celebrity, censorship, polysemy, and interpretive texts; and the university industrial complex (i.e. socialization through education). We examine fiction, feature film, experimental media, and more. Readings are about the entertainment business, aesthetics and interpretation, and queer transgender culture. Previously taught as ENG 381; not repeatable.
