Course Description Prerequisites: Sign up through the "SR Seminar" section of myBarnard. Enrollment limited to Barnard senior English majors or Barnard senior Film majors. Priority given to Barnard Film majors and English majors with a Film concentration. This course is designed to generate fresh takes on the family and on its multitude of representations, and to help each of you toward a thesis topic that is vital and has urgency for you. We will look closely at novels, memoirs and films that center on the child in the home, adult children and siblings, and at styles of parenting, from Salinger's Glass family to Hirokazu Koreeda's Yokoyama family. The operations of narrative, memory, imagination and play will interface with considerations of family psychodynamics (by way of readings in psychoanalysis) and the social history of this complex and polymorphous institution. Authors include Gaston Bachelard, Alison Bechdel, Jonathan Franzen. Vivian Gornick, Lorraine Hansberry, Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, Arthur Miller, J.D. Salinger, Tennessee Williams, D.W. Winnicott, Richard Yates; films by Wes Anderson, Noah Baumbach, Ingmar Bergmann, Lance Hammer, Azazel Jacobs, Tamara Jenkins, Elia Kazan, Ang Lee, Andrei Zvyagintsev and others.
