Minor in Popular Culture Studies - Modern Film and the Theory of the Gaze CTMP 3305   Modern Film and the Theory of the Gaze
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course will develop certain aspects of the theory of the gaze in relation to a selection of films which themselves embody or express a thinking about looking. We all like to look; and we are all given over to being seen, and both these modalities have received historically unprecedented elaboration in the moving pictures. The films and theories will raise issues about visual desire, horror, paranoia, surveillance and fascination.
