WGST 3870: Russian Women and Film

(same as RUSS 3870 and FILM_S 3870) Traces image(s) of the Russian woman in 20th-century Russia as constructed in Russian, Soviet and late-Soviet film. Discusses heroines of pre-revolutionary melodrama and "new Soviet man and woman" of the 20s. Considers war-time re-alignment of gender roles in defense of motherland and their subtle revamping in post-war and post-Stalinist period, and the shifting relations between women and men, women and women, and women and the State. Emphasizes cultural-historical and ideological status of women as reflected in onscreen image(s) in Russian film. Designed to serve as an introduction to film studies and to 20th-century Russian culture more generally. Conducted in English (all films have English subtitles).
