HE0101HE0101 Queens and Kings On Screen
Depicting the worlds of royalty nobility and peasantry on screen not only tells stories about the past but reveals the attitudes priorities and cultures of the filmmakers age. Our course will study films on subjects from the late medieval to Revolutionary eras to address questions about historical and modern cultures: how did men and women interact; how was power legitimized and wielded; how did commoners navigate a rigidly hierarchical world? And how do our imaginations of past gender class and power relations reflect contemporary realities?
