In this 6-week Seniors College of Nova Scotia course, students will examine closely women’s roles depicted in films targeting the female audience during the Classical Hollywood era (1930-1960).
Feminist film theory will be the principal through which we interpret these historic films. The semester is divided by common themes and stereotypes found within popular genres of this film making period – Film noir, Gothic, Romance, and Melodrama and will be presented by Donne De Ville, PhD in communication Studies.
De Ville has taught film and media studies courses at universities in Canada and the US and is currently a pert-time instructor at Dalhousie University while working for the Lunenburg Documentary Film Festival.
