Various approaches are considered, including the analysis of formal concerns combined with different socio-cultural perspectives as well as entertainment genres and avant-garde experiment. Industrial practice and film analysis are discussed with a focus on individual artists. Attention is also paid to case studies dealing with questions of criticism and reception.

Moving Images and Gender 15 credits

Spring admittance

Exchange student and interested in this course? Ask your SU coordinator to contact our coordinator to see if the course can be included in your study.

Moving Images and Gender addresses these and many other questions concerning gender, sexuality and body issues in audiovisual imageries of the present and the past. Focusing on feminist film and media theories, the course offers tools to unravel hierarchies behind the seemingly self-evident gender settings in the media, but it also explores how gendered and sexual conventions could be challenged in moving images and in our ways of looking at them. In particular, questions of gendered viewing pleasure and politics are at the core of the course: what draws us towards some images and pushes us away from others, and how encounters with moving images affect our ways of looking at and valuing ourselves and others.
