HUM 295-02 - Special Topic: Miscegenation Nation: Representations of Mixed-Race Relationships in Film and TV

2 credits (Spring)
Cross-listed as: ENG 295-01 .  Representaions of Mixed-race Relationships in Film and TV. Over the last thirty years, there has been an increase in interracial relationships in film and television, creating the appearance of a happily multicultural America. Together, we will explore and research how these contemporary media representations relate to histories of “anti-miscegenation” laws in the United States preventing “interbreeding among the races” as well as contemporary realities of racial terror, racialized cultural appropriation, and the drive for true representation in media. 

Prerequisite: Second year standing.
Note: Dates: January 24 to March 16. Half-semester deadlines apply.
