アメリカの文化:映画・表象・アイデンティティ

This lecture course focuses on the American cultural institution of cinema, paying close attention to the ways it portrays the cultures of the United States on the big screen. Cinema is an entertainment industry and an art form, and in both frameworks we will study how it makes meaning and how we can best interpret film in its cultural contexts. The class introduces the basic concepts necessary to understand film form—those elements that distinguish film from other expressive forms such as literature—as well as theories in cultural studies considering the connections between culture and ideology. Chapter topics cover representations of race and ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality in US cinema. We will watch movies from all periods of American cinema history to add details to our readings and discussions.
