In Self, Society, & Cinema, I intend to explore how film critiques, reflects, and shapes social values.  Particular emphasis will be placed on gender and sexuality—qualities especially important when one considers that they are fluid constructs.  As malleable forms, gender and sexuality are in constant flux.  Further, they are unjustly ranked with some expressions deemed righteous to the exclusion of all others.  By engaging with film, we may better understand how identity is crafted.  It is my hope that we foster and create entertainment tolerant of diverse identities through academic engagement with the arts.
