Myth and Ideology in Cinema: Hollywood Sex, Race, Class, Culture
FILM 315
Fall 2015
Section: 01  

The course is concerned with the ways in which a popular art form like the movies affects and is affected by the ideology of the culture in which it is produced. We will study the processes by which genres arise in movies, how they develop historically, how they register ideological change, how they break up, and recombine. The course will concentrate on Hollywood cinema and its complex engagement with cultural histories of class and identity.
