Primary Instructor:

This course combines several approaches, drawing materials from urban and more broadly, cultural anthropology by focusing on cities and communities; media and visual anthropology, taking into account popular cultural forms and life ways as portrayed on the big screen; and musicology and film studies, asking how—and why—film scores are matched and used to evoke particular cinematic narratives. We will watch, read about, listen to and discuss a selection of films and consider the many ways in which, in them, music and images are arranged to convey meanings, symbols, places, cultural practices and political relations. Evaluations will be based on class participation, a short, autobiography about your personal history and relationship to film, a take-home midterm essay, and ongoing group projects organized around distinct film genres, culminating in a final collective paper and presentation.
