    The Genius of Everyday Embarrasments in Emma (2020)

    Analyze the use of unique everyday elements in Emma (2020). The director added unique aspects by adding "butt-warming" by the fire, being dressed by servants, and nosebleeds and inoportune times. These little moments are unique for an Austen film and are a great way to update the story.

    • I think that they add a more human feel to the film. Period pieces sometimes feel a little bit distant, because of the mannerisms that we don't identify with and the elements we have to work harder to understand. This new adaptation of Emma helped the audience see through the perfect facade that period pieces often portray, with the little things that normally go behind the scenes. – aclmohle 4 years ago

    All Souls Series vs The Twilight Series

    Analyze the similarities and difference of the All Souls trilogy and the Twilight series. These seem to similarities but differences can definitely be found. In both series, the lead female character falls for an over-bearing vampire with close family bonds. Bella does not have any powers until she is turned in to a vampire but Diana Bishop was always a witch but did not have control of her power. The world Diana lives in is much more elaborate though, there is time travelling and the historical aspect of the series is in depth. Does that elaboration make the All Souls Triology more effect than the The twilight series?


      Princes and Masculinity in Disney

      Analyze what idea of masculinity is shown in Disney films where princes are portrayed. What are the negative or toxic ideas of masculinity that are shown and what are some examples that may criticize toxic masculinity.

      • I think disney wants more princesses. They wants girl to feel empowered and portrayed more as heroes and not only men can be heroes too. They want more heroines. They want Girl Power. Disney doesn’t show a lot of masculinity. I feel like the only prince movie that made was Aladdin but he wasn’t a prince. There was a princess who was Princess Jasmine. I think disney shows masculinity as a man being the true love kiss when really its not always about that and they showed that on Frozen. It can be close relationships like sisters loving each others. What if a disney princess was with a girl not a guy. – 2klonewolf 6 years ago
      • Great topic! It's true, Disney has been spending a lot of time on their princesses, and while that is definitely a good thing, there is plenty of room to evolve the princes as well. Where's the artistic prince? The gay prince? A prince CRYING, for goodness' sake? It would be great to include a section at the end on examples of how Disney's portrayal of masculinity could improve. – Heather Lambert 6 years ago

      Great article! I took a course during my undergrad that was about the History of Witches and the fascination we have with witches as American specifically is really interesting!
