Teaching Corner

This semester I am teaching an Introduction to Film class and I am proud to say that my students are doing a really great job of participating in classroom discussion, even when it comes to sensitive and difficult subjects.

Today I introduced the concept of feminist film criticism.  I introduced a couple of relevant examples and my students gave examples of their own.

Try and see if you can figure out which came from the students and which came from me!

Lara Croft of Tomb Raider

Kim Kardashian

the Disney Princesses

James Bond and the Bond Girls

Marilyn Monroe

The many reactions to Renee Zellweger’s face

Xena: The Warrior Princess

#TheFappening and Jennifer Lawrence’s condemnation of those who looked at her leaked nudes

The sexualization of the Olsen twins and Emma Watson before and after they turned 18

The recently released Bob’s Burgers porn parody

In short, my students are brilliant and I love my job.
