HMS-440B Topics in Cinema/Media Studies: Cinema And the Modern City Fiction, and Documentary
9:30 am – 12:20 pm
North Hall, 109
This course will study the relationship between the rise of the modern city and the development of photography and cinema. Indeed, it is impossible to imagine the development of the cinema without the city, and cities themselves have been shaped by cinematic form. What is the relation between cityscape and screenspace? How has the modern city been represented in cinema?
