Cinema & Violence

Description of Course:

Violence serves as organizing principle for this seminar on violence and the cinema. An integral part of cinema since its inception, violence raises questions about genre, representation, spectacle, affect, ideology, and identity. Organized around student interests, this seminar will consider filmic and other critical theories of violence and spectatorship from a range of perspectives, including psychoanalysis, jurisprudence, ethics, phenomenology, and feminism. With guidance from the instructor, students will be encouraged to shape the direction of the seminar, including film selections, attendant readings, and assignments.
