Summer 2022 Topic: 

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? United States National Film Registry as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." Set in Los Angeles in the 1940s, this film noir animation and live-action classic is also an allegory of racial and ethnic discrimination of real-time displacement and erasure of BIOPC communities in the late 20th century. Through case studies, assigned readings, archival records, digital mapping, films, and documentaries, this course provides essential perspectives on the different ways vulnerable communities gain historical equity and justice in the face of powerful opposition, urban renewal and gentrification.
