CINE 281 - Race Films: Spike Lee and his Interlocutors

ENGL 281 | AFRC 281

This course requires students to think critically about historical and contemporary cinematic representations of race, class, gender, sexuality, and the urban landscape. The class will examine various Spike Lee films for their aestheticization of broader social and cultural phenomena as well as their engagement with larger theoretical and political concerns. Students with a background in literary theory, visual studies, anthropology, film, Africana studies and communication are especially encouraged to enroll.
