Georgetown, KY – Georgetown College is beginning a new Community Film Series to engage both the campus and larger Georgetown communities in dialogues about issues which influence our sense of community.
The films grapple with issues of race, gender, social class, privilege, and other factors that influence our sense of community. The films are free and open to the public.
The series sponsors – Campus Ministry, and the College’s departments of Education, English, Philosophy, and Sociology, and the Women’s Studies Program – hope to highlight voices and points of view that might otherwise be silenced, according to Dr. Sarah Cribbs, assistant professor of Sociology.
All three films will be shown in Georgetown College’s Asher Science Center, Room 112, starting at 7 p.m.
Feb. 23 – “The Farm” highlights the stories of six inmates in one of the U.S.’s largest prisons, Angola Prison.
March 8 – “Miss Representation” explores the connection between mainstream media’s representation of women and their corresponding underrepresentation in politics.
April 26 –”Take a Look, Not a Glance” was a course project for students enrolled in Sociology’s Cultural Diversity class. Students investigate issues of cultural diversity that directly affect the Georgetown College campus community.
