SOC 3306

Course Name: 
Sexuality, Gender, Class and Race in the Teen Film

The focus of this class will be on viewings and analyses of films featuring images of teems produced between 1930 and the present, focusing on the following questions: what is adolescence (and how has it been defined in American film)? What is the range of experiences that characterizes American adolescence across gender, race and class lines? How does it make sense to think about the social influence of films on individuals and society?
