Get Directions

bell hooks was a prolific author, poet, cultural critic, feminist theorist, teacher, and activist and we remember her this May through a discussion of her important essay "The Oppositional Gaze: Black Female Spectators." We will also be screening one of the films she analyzes in the essay: Julie Dash's 1982 short film Illusions. Please join us for an open conversation that will be led by students and faculty from the Film, Television, and Media Arts Department and the Teaching and Learning Center. We will be highlighting hooks' lessons about the power of visuality and the pleasure of critical thinking and cinematic interrogation. Contact Mary Schmitt @ mary.Schmitt@quinnipiac.edu for questions and a copy of the essay
