DLCL 1: CSN Undergraduate Colloquium (ENGLISH 1)

This colloquium is intended for undergraduates who are interested in the history and theory of the novel, and who would like to attend the Center for the Study of the Novel's (CSN) annual conference. Before the conference, students will meet with CSN's graduate student staff, to read and discuss a small number of key texts by participating scholars, whose presentations students will then attend. After the conference, the colloquium will meet again, to discuss both the readings and conference papers, and explore their broader implications for the study of the novel. Attendance at both meetings of the colloquium, and at least one panel at the conference, is required for course credit.

DLCL 152A: DLCL Film Series: Queer Cinema (DLCL 354A)

This quarter's film series will showcase ten of the most remarkable films and filmmakers in the long and under-represented history of queer cinema. Starting with Ang Lee's groundbreaking Brokeback Mountain (2005), we will discuss the issues of queer space, surveillance, and gender performance. Moving from cowboys to schoolgirls and streetgirls to further examine our assumptions about performance, sexuality, and space, we will discuss Leontine Sagan's classic Girls in Uniform (1931) and Sean Baker's recent smash hit Tangerine (2015). Turning towards the historical representation of queer communities we will watch Jennie Livingston's documentary Paris is Burning (1990) and Luchino Visconti's The Damned (1969) to examine the ways that homosexuality has been positively and negatively represented as subversive and decadent. For a lighter note, we will watch Jaco van Dormael's thought-provoking The Brand New Testament (2015), which imagines a complete resetting of social norms, and Céline Sc more »

For a lighter note, we will watch Jaco van Dormael's thought-provoking The Brand New Testament (2015), which imagines a complete resetting of social norms, and Céline Sciamma's Tomboy (2011), both of which examine the sometimes comical oftentimes challenging experiences of queer youth. To examine how queer relationships break down national, linguistic, and cultural boundaries we will watch Wong Kar-Wai's Happy Together (1997) and Pedro Almodóvar's All About My Mother (1999). Finally, to conclude our series, we will screen Barry Jenkins' recent award-winning film Moonlight (2016).nnDiscussion will focus on analyzing the relationships between gender and sexuality, love and friendship, body and performance and discussing issues of sexuality, race, and class as well as the different ways that film has represented homosexuality and transsexuality across cultures, schools of cinema, film technologies, and history.nnAll screenings are free and open to the public and audience members are encouraged to participate in the discussions following the films. Please note that grades for this course are entirely dependent on attendance of at least seven screenings. Missed screenings can be made-up by writing a short paper on the film, pre-arranged with the instructor. Please be aware that some films may include graphic or disturbing content: viewers are therefore advised to familiarize themselves with the films' content before viewing. May be repeated for credit. nnScreening schedule:nJan 10 Brokeback Mountain (2005) Ang LeenJan 17 Girls In Uniform (1931) Leontine SagannJan 24 Tangerine (2015) Sean Baker nJan 31 Paris Is Burning (1990) Jennie Livingston nFeb 7 The Damned (1969) Luchino Visconti nFeb 14 The Brand New Testament (2015) Jaco Van Dormael nFeb 21 Tomboy (2011) Céline Sciamma nFeb 28 Happy Together (1997) Wong Kar-Wai nMar 7 All About My Mother (1999) Pedro Almodóvar nMar 14 Moonlight (2016) Barry Jenkins
