In this class, we'll discuss both films in the Frozen franchise and address how we can view them through a feminist-inspired* lens. This intro-level feminist theory class will address three feminist questions: 1) What is agency, and do the women in Frozen have agency? 2) In what ways do the characters in Frozen follow or go away from traditional gender norms, especially compared to other Disney princess movies? 3) Do these movies provide a positive example for children? *Note for parents:...
Students will learn several aspects of feminist theory, appropriate to the age range (10-14) and apply those theories to the popular Disney movies.
I have been an English professor for 10 years! I teach creative writing and composition. One aspect of composition is rhetorical analysis, including through various critical lenses such as feminist theory.
No homework, but students should have watched both Frozen movies, if possible.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The feminist theories of this class are based on intersectional feminism, which argues that gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, race, nationality, language, socioeconomic class, and physical ability are all factors in power and privilege.
