HIST 230 Sex, Gender, Film, and History

HIST 230.  Sex, Gender, Film, and History.  3 Credits.   H   

In the second half of the 20th century, Americans struggled over sex and gender-and both their behaviors and beliefs changed dramatically, though not without controversy. In this class, we use mainstream, popular American films produced during this volatile era to analyze historical understandings of gender identity and appropriate sexual behaviors in post-WWII American society. This course is also an introduction to the study of history: students will work extensively with film and other primary documents, and will analyze different scholarly interpretations of the same set of events.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in History

History does not just narrate a sequence of past events. The practice of history examines change over time and tries to understand the forces that contributed to those changes. Historians are most interested in questions that begin by asking ‘why’ or ‘how.’ These questions demand complex answers about who we are, how we have come to where we are, and what forces have shaped humanity through time.
