ENGL-250 US Film History
Fall for 2017-2018
This course introduces students to the study of film. We will explore the medium from the 1890s to the present, focusing on close analysis of films as texts. This includes key aspects of film form such as narrative, mise-en-scène, editing, and sound. We will also consider individual films in light of the social contexts, economic institutions, and political conditions in which they were produced and received. Readings and screenings will primarily cover Hollywood. Attendance at weekly film screenings is required.
