Fall 2021 Course Details: Come laugh at racism with us! “And there’s something funny—there’s always something a little funny in all our disasters, if one can face the disaster,” said James Baldwin in his “The Uses of the Blues.” This semester, we will apply several different critical approaches to explore and understand what race is. Of our special concern will be the claim that race is a culturally (not biologically) constructed category. The reading list will include literary texts (Toni Morrison’s “Recitatif”), works of African American comedians (Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, etc.), philosophical texts (Immanuel Kant, W. E. B. Du Bois, K. A. Appiah, etc.) as well as some legal documents (recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions concerning affirmative action) and Henry Louis Gates’s recent, Stony the Road. The general goal of the course is to improve the student’s ability to speak and think critically about race and race relations in the U.S. 

In Fall 2021 this course fulfills a Post-1800 Literature requirement for English majors.

In Fall 2021 this course fulfills the Race & Diversity requirement for English majors.

Why Joaquin Phoenix's Joker Does A Surprising Amount Of Dancing -  CINEMABLEND

 

This course explores traditional film genres and the contemporary practice of mixed genre films that address the increasing demand for cultural entertainment reflecting the diversity and mobility of our national and global cultures. After an initial study of key film genres such as the Western, gangster film, film noir, melodrama, musical, war film, and comedy, we will examine recent mixed genre films such as Joker (Todd Philipps); Parasite (Joon-ho Bong), and Black Panther (Coogler), etc. Our goal is to understand how an intersectional mix of genres helps to articulate contemporary culture in its complexity and its sophisticated forms of cultural representation and entertainment.

This course satisfies the Genre requirement for English Literature majors.
