Andrea Gronvall, a longtime contributor to the Reader's film coverage, will begin teaching this fall at the University of Chicago's Graham School of General Studies. Her eight-week course, "Encountering the East," will cover films about women of the West seduced by Eastern cultures. Edward Said's Orientalism will be a key text, and among the films she'll screen and lecture on are John Cromwell's Anna and the King of Siam (1946), Jack Cardiff's My Geisha (1962), David Lean's A Passage to India (1984), and Bernardo Bertolucci's The Sheltering Sky (1990). The course meets Tuesday nights beginning September 23.
