Inhoud
The course provides an overview of the historical development of the film medium as an art form, economic product, social practice and object of theoretical reflection. The lectures deal with the key moments and processes in the history of European and American cinema and will introduce you to a variety of approaches to film studies. During seminars, students will learn how to analyse film scenes and written filmhistorical sources (e.g. film theoretical texts, fan magazines, and advertisements) by way of the methods of source criticism, close reading and (structuralist) film analysis. A mandatory series of film screenings illustrating the aesthetic development of film from early cinema to New Hollywood  forms an integral part of the course.
This course is part of Core Profile 2 of the BA Media and Culture in English.
