AMST 4474 - Stardom and American Cinema


This course examines the role of stardom and star performance in American cinema from the silent era to the present.  Using social history, cultural studies and film criticism theory, we will explore topics such as the cultural patterns of stardom, constructions and subversions of star identity, and the ways in which issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality affect the star image both inside and outside cinema.
