Primary Instructor:

This seminar will take up a series of case studies that investigate the patterns and practices of theatrical and non-theatrical exhibition and reception during several different periods of U.S. cinema history. Archive materials available within the University Library system and relatively close by as well as student interest will determine the specific choice of those periods. That investigation will consider at least half a dozen components: distribution policies, promotional strategies, programming formats, screening sites or spaces, audience moviegoing practices, and reviewing practices. It also will consider cinema exhibition and reception in relation to other forms of mass entertainment or mass media, depending on the period — i.e., vaudeville, theater, radio, television, video/dvd, and “new media.”

Readings will range from one or more general histories and collections to focused case studies.

Course Requirements:

Requirements will include several short research papers and a final project concluding in a longer research paper.
