Cinematic Sociology

Cinematic Sociology
In this seminar we will develop our sociological imagination by viewing, discussing, and analyzing popular films. Rather than considering them simply as "entertainment," we will explore the various ways that popular films can be a vehicle for social commentary, analysis, and criticism, particularly about controversial topics such as race, gender, and sexuality. Films to be screened will include The Help, 27 Dresses, and The Little Mermaid, among others. 3 hrs. sem. SOC (C. Han)
