REL 360 Presents: Bend it Like Beckham


REL 360–our one credit hour course–will be ending the semester with the film Bend It Like Beckham. The film’s protagonist, Jesminder “Jess” Bhamra, is obsessed with football (more aptly known as soccer in the U.S.), but her fascination with the sport doesn’t align with her parents’ traditional ideas of a young woman’s future. When she joins a soccer team, tensions worsen within her family and she must chose between following her parents’ wishes or pursuing her passion.

WHAT? REL 360 is a one-credit course designed to show four films throughout the semester that will provoke discussion about what exactly takes place when the humanities and popular culture collide.

WHEN? Thursday, November 10th @ 6pm

WHERE? Lloyd Hall 235

WHY? For the critical discussions! You’ll notice aspects of film that you never had before!

WHAT ELSE? Anyone can attend! If you decide you like the class, you can email Professor Bagger ( for more information on the course, or visit the REL website.


We hope to see you there!
