LV20GM83 (3ECTS) : (1ersemestre)

Mardi 12h-13h, Mme GRASSY, A.24 (Platane)

Celluloid “Injuns”

Native Americans are one of the staples of American western movies, whose plots are mostly based on the antagonism between cowboys and “Indians.” Used like props for most of movie history, Native Americans have sometimes been portrayed like round characters – more consistently after the Native American movements of the 1960s - although stereotypes abound, even in sympathetic works (the wise Indian, the Pocahontas-style princess, and the cunning warrior, for example). This class aims at exploring the Indian as metaphor and reality through a corpus of seven western movies (StagecoachBroken Arrow,Devil’s DoorwayThe SearchersCheyenne AutumnLittle Big Man, and Dances with Wolves). Students will be engaging mostly in image analysis through in-class work, and will be required to make short oral and written presentations.
