FM4306: Feminist Film Studies

This module offers an introduction to feminist film studies – history and theory whilst addressing questions of representation, aesthetics, ideology, and politics as related to gender and intersecting identities. We will explore what makes a particular film or media practice “feminist”, and what role media production, distribution, and exhibition have in the process. How do media – images and practice – participate in and/or resist dominant ideas? And in what ways do feminist film studies challenge our received knowledge of film and media theory to date?
