This seminar offers an introduction to the methods and research issues of the discipline(s) of cinema and media studies. We will be focusing on many theoretical and historiographical debates about media production, dissemination, and reception. Specifically we will address methods of textual analysis and basic concepts of film form, technique and style; industrial/ critical/ideological categories of genres and broader modes of representation; and issues of authorship, stardom, and audience. We will examine film/tv/media as social institutions, psychological apparatuses, cultural practices, and grounds for identity politics. We will also discuss questions of professional development, ranging from scholarly organizations, conference presentation, and essay/book publishing.
