Description

This course examines contemporary approaches to film theory. We will explore how different theories and resulting methods of analysis built on structuralist and post-structuralist presuppositions and paradigms have influenced recent film theory and its consideration of narrative practice, the psychological experience of viewing, the construction of moving image representations, and the impact of technology on aesthetic practice.

Course Requirements:

Students will be assessed based on reading quizzes, participation, 2 papers, and a final exam.

Intended Audience:

Since this is an upper level theory course, the class is intended for FTVM majors.

Class Format:

The course will meet twice per week for lectures and a 2-3 hour lab for viewing movies.
