Focus Groups

Credit/no-credit only.

Class description

Queer Images in Film will explore the relation between perception, stereotypes, and society through the use of the cinema. Utilizing a variety of lenses we will explore the context of the film, its relation to identity and in some cases the misappropriation of such ideas and themes to other causes. Tues will be assigned to watching the movie, Thursday to discussion and exploration. This class can be counted as an I&S credit and will have an optional writing component.

Student learning goals

General method of instruction

Tues will be the observation of the film. Thursday will generally start with an interactive activity followed by a discussion based around the concepts the movie has provided.

Recommended preparation

Class assignments and grading

It is a writing optional course, but as a standard there will be no homework, only attendance of both classes.
