This course will address key issues in feminist film studies in order to examine the history, present-day concerns, and potential future trajectories of the field. Feminist scholarly interventions into film and popular culture will be placed in the context of transnational, decolonial, queer, trans, race and disability studies. Class meetings will be accompanied by film screenings. Some knowledge of film history is preferred (but not required).
