Reading quite a bit of hard-boiled detective fiction this semester has raised questions about its translation to film, in particular, classic film noir.

In response to this, I will be running a short course: Women in Film Noir on Thursdays from May 2nd-23rd  from 4 to 6:30 pm. We’ll be watching classic films, Double Indemnity, Out of the Past, Pick up on South Street and Touch of Evil, and discussing aspects of film noir including, but not limited to, issues of gender.

If you’d like to take part, sign up at Continuing Education.
