MEDA 390 Special Topics in Film History: (subtitle)

Whether focused on a movement in cinema history (e.g. France's Nouvelle Vague), on a national cinema (e.g. Japanese Documentary), or on a frontier between cinema and other disciplines (e.g. Cinema and Psychoanalysis), this course will develop the student's critical vocabulary and philosophical understanding of the medium. This is primarily a history and theory course, though instructors may allow students to produce original media art rather than a research paper. Course topics will vary, but may include: The History of Documentary; The History of Animation, topics mentioned above, or others. MEDA 390 may be repeated for credit given different course topics and titles.
