Filming Freedom Movements: Movies, Music, Monuments, Memory


This class is a cross-disciplinary exploration of a series of questions about what societies choose to commemorate, what they stay silent about, what they try to repress, and how this changes over time. What impact does this have on public policy and cultural debate? Using a cross-cultural examination of four societies, we will draw on methods from the arts, art history, history, documentary, policy, cultural studies, critical race theory, sound studies, Indigenous studies, and feminist theory.
