Course — Bite Me: Generation X on Film

Saturdays, Oct 12 - Nov 9, 10am to 1pm

In this five-week Course we delve into the films, music videos, and television shows of the late 80s and early 90s to investigate what defines a generation and a genre, and how the Gen X aesthetic — sarcastic, rebellious, and deeply dissatisfied with the banality of life — defined a cycle of films that changed the landscape of independent and mainstream cinema.

Deep Dive — Silence and Scandal: A History of Power in Hollywood

Sat, Dec 7, 10am to 1pm

This Deep Dive will use the careers of Clara Bow, Carole Lombard, and Rita Hayworth as case studies, looking at the casting practices, tabloid coverage, and contractual obligations that encouraged women’s silence about harassment and abuse.
