Master of Arts (MA)
Film Studies Program
Examines significant films in the ancient epic canon from a queer theoretical viewpoint to survey the extent of atypical gender formations within the genre. Uses the studies of Judith Butler and Michel Foucault, in the main, to establish the basis of these trangressive gender formations and to provide an explanation of their causes and appearances.
