FNMS 398 - Queer Cinema

Queer Cinema and TV: What does mean to “queer” a film? How have LGBTQ+ artists created space for themselves on television? The seminar will focus on queer media, with the goal of exploring how film and television shape the perception of sexual and gendered identities (particularly at intersection with other forms of difference including race, class, region, and disability). The class will be organized chronologically, moving from classical Hollywood cinema through queer representation in a post-marriage equality world. Queer theory, television studies, critical race theory, and feminist readings will be interwoven through the course, and texts examined will range from Paris is Burning and Moonlight to Orange is the New Black and Black Mirror.
