For Tuesday, November 15, please do the following:
(1) Watch Medea (Pier Paolo Pasolini, 1969), taking notes as you see
fit. In addition to the DVD being reserved at the library, the film is
also streaming on Amazon.
(2) Read Kristi M. Wilson's essay, "Hero Trouble: Blood, Politics, and Kinship in Pasolini's Medea," another entry from the Of Muscles and Men volume. Wilson will fill in the background on Pasolini and his intentions, which you might want after seeing this film.
(3) Remember by noon on Tuesday to comment on this post with your choice of a sequence from Medea to view in class.
NOTE: Our speaker, Meredith Safran, might be joining us in class, so look sharp!
