Need a humanities credit over May intersession?
If you're a film fan, and an Ole Miss student needing a 300-level humanities credit over the May intersession (2008), be sure to register for Gender Studies 301, Gender and Culture: Gender Issues in Independent Film.
Over the course of 10 class days, students will watch a selection of independent films from the last 20 years, including Sex, Lies and Videotape (pictured), The Crying Game, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Boys Don't Cry, Bend it Like Beckham and Brokeback Mountain among others, and discuss the representation of gender via both class discussion and written assignments. (Papers, yes; tests, no.)
The class -- if a minimum of 12 students enroll (so tell your friends) -- will be taught by Michelle Emanuel (me), co-director of the Oxford Film Festival.
