Gender and Genre in Japanese Cinema

EAS 306/GSS 295

Info tab content
This course explores the interplay between genre and gender in 20th and 21st century Japanese cinema. This task entails, as described by Christine Gledhill, reconfiguring their relationship "not in terms of social reflection, ideological misrepresentation, or subject positioning but as cinematic affect and discursive circulation between society and story, public and imaginary worlds." We will study how various film genres translate gender discourses and ideologies into aesthetic experiences, and how gender's aesthetic and imaginative power brings genres to life as dynamic processes of cultural production and social transformation.
