A new group on campus, “McGill Students for Feminisms” has asked me to announce an event they have organized. It is a film screening of the film “Alien”. It will be held on February 25th in Leacock 232.
They sent the following text:
“Since its release 36 years ago, Alien has attracted widespread debate about its themes that fall under Feminist, Marxist, and psychoanalytic discussions. A classic, gripping horror sci-fi, it raises endless questions about gender and power. Today, Alien remains to be one of the most important works for feminist film criticism.
This event is part of of a series of other lectures and debates brought to you by MS4F focusing on feminist literature and film.
For the panel discussion we will be joined by:
– Professor Ned Schantz, Professor in the Department of English who has taught various courses on film including Feminism and Film.
– Professor Alanna Thain, Professor in the Department of English whose research areas include Film Theory and Gender & Sexuality.”
