HMS-440K Intensive Film Theory (3 Credits)

3 Credits

This course provides an intensive introduction to film theory and philosophy, contextualized in relation to movements in international film history. Topics are likely to include approaches to the cinematic apparatus, montage and mise-en-scene, gaze and spectatorship theory, and approaches drawn from media studies, sound studies, psychoanalysis, semiotics, feminist, queer, and post-colonial studies. The course is required for the Cinema Studies minor but is open to non-minors as well.
