NATIVEAM 14: Indigenous Peoples in Film and Visual Media: Reframing Narratives of Race, Gender and Personhood

This class explores the multiple valences of Indigenous Peoples within the genre of visual media and film with articular attention to race and gender as reflective and reflexive categories. Using the lenses of, anthropology, postcolonial, Indigenous and Gender Studies this course will examine the ways in which the imagery of indigenous peoples has been woven into Western narratives, appropriated as projections of Western masculinity and in more recent years reclaimed by indigenous filmmakers and documentarians. The format of the class will involve a "flipped classroom" pedagogy, weekly screenings and closely supervised student presentations on topics related to the course. Weekly screenings of films, lectures and discussions will require mandatory attendance at every class meeting and within working groups. Students will develop skills to identify visual media referents, related to contemporary and digital contexts while gaining appreciation for indigenous identity history and sovereignty weekly reflection papers are required. No previous film studies experience is necessary.
