This is an upper-level undergraduate course, but some graduate students have taken the course for graduate credit with special permission (and extra assigments).
Here is the full course description:
|Queer Filmmaker Todd Haynes addresses|
Mezipatra (and GW students)
Conversely, what kinds of unexpected alliances have been shaped across borders as queer movements have globalized? How have these movements theorized race, gender, class, and ability; what connections have been made with other movements organized around identity? This course will thus consider how questions of queer representation, particularly in film, converge with questions of queer globalization(s). The majority of the course takes place on GW campus, but includes an international component in November that requires students to travel to Prague, Czech Republic. While abroad, students will attend the Mezipatra Prague International LGBTQ Film Festival and attend class sessions co-taught by Professor Katerina Kolarova from Charles University's department of Gender Studies. Students will also be able to engage in discussions with Charles University students who will also be participating in these overseas class lectures.
