Primary Instructor:

Not a hands-on class, this course is an introduction to the American exoticization and eroticization of the Pacific Islands through film. Here we will develop and sharpen our critical visual literacy skills by examining the representation of American fears and desires as they are projected unto this particular region. Balancing this act will be an introduction to the actualities of Pacific Islanders, cultures and histories. Requirements include short analytical papers and sectional quizzes.
