FIST 520: Graduate seminar on Film and Media Criticism: On Cinematic BeautyHow do we assess what is beautiful in film? How are beautiful bodies co-created by cinematic form, and what gendered, racialized, and classed reifications undergird our judgments of beauty? We will examine transnational Asian cinemas and screen cultures to study the beautiful, the ugly, the abject, and the sublime in terms of embodiment and aesthetics, more broadly. We aim to interrogate the aesthetic affects of beauty as well as related categories like charm, charisma, and seduction.
