  • This course will explore themes of religion, race, gender, and relationship to the religious or racial “other” in films from the silent era to the present. It will consider film as a medium and engage students in analysis and discussion of cinematic images, with the goal of developing hermeneutic lenses through which these images can be interpreted. The films selected all deal with issues of race, religion, gender, and relationship, and ask the ultimate question, “How should we treat one another?”
