Courses: European Film (COMLH262B01)

Spring 2012

This course will explore masculinity in a variety of national cinemas. What are the parameters for representations of male bodies in contemporary film? How do cinematic representations of male bodies differ from those of female bodies? Have the modes of representation shifted with the rise of “global cinema”? How have the phenomena of feminism, post-feminism, migration, globalization and new media influenced contemporary representations of maleness? We will examine these questions through an analysis of a variety of films that reflect the contours of “global cinema.”
