46-2430 Power and Freedom on Screen


Americans cherish individual freedom, while remaining suspicious of power. Yet individual freedom and choice are always exercised within contexts and conditions that are not only unchosen but also saturated with power. This course explores individuals negotiations with power and the unchosen through a series of films paired with theoretical readings. Films will include Into the Wild, Mystic River, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, and Wendy and Lucy, while theoretical authors will include Mill, Marx, Foucault, and Butler.
