AAST 361 - Framing Blackness II: African Americans and Cinema in the Late 20th and Early 21st Centuries

4HU, CD, WRi
First Semester. This course will continue the inquiry in AAST 261, but will intensively focus on more recent films with Black subjectivity in both dominant and independent cinema. We will consider the legacy of both “Blaxplolitation” and the radical film movement of the early 1970’s on artists of the 1980’s and 90’s. Short papers will be required every week with lengthier assignments at mid-term and finals. Students must be able to attend all morning classes and evening screenings.
