Cinematic Sociology

Cinematic Sociology
In this course, 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, sexuality). Films to be screened will include The Help, 27 Dresses, The Little Mermaid, among others. (Sociology)
