Patricia Rozema's "Desperanto," the first section of the 1992 omnibus film Montréal vu par/Montreal Sextet, follows Ann, an Anglophone Canadian housewife who just wants to have a good time visiting this Francophone city, yet struggles mightily with her inability to speak or understand French. A fantasy sequence during a party, however, suddenly allows her to see – and the interact with – the subtitles in English at the bottom of the screen, eventually serving as a magic carpet of sorts that whisks her off the screen at the end of the film.

Second-wave feminists identified marriage as an oppressive institution that functioned to subjugate women – demanding their obedience and conformity in myriad ways and funneling their labor into housework and childrearing. Feminist film criticism of the 1970s and 1980s was also deeply invested in the critique of marriage and romance as hetero-patriarchal institutions. Yet in subsequent years, this critique receded into the background, as women participated in the workforce and obtained education in increasing numbers, marriage became a rarer and later life event across the populations of most Western countries, and as postfeminism arose.

CFP for Panel: Society for Cinema & Media Studies Conference March 25-28, 2015 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada
"Gender and Genre Through a Post-9/11 Lens"
This panel seeks to engage with the repercussions that teleological imagery and metaphors of progress had on Victorian thought and culture. Progress, imagined as an accumulative, unidirectional movement through time, profoundly shaped the Victorian understanding of history, politics, social organization, and national destiny. Imagining civilization as developing in phases fomented a national obsession with documenting, collecting, and cataloguing people and things into discrete stages of development, and additionally demanded frequent cultural demonstrations of the nation's position at the pinnacle of this notional configuration.
