With a specific focus on film, this seminar will introduce students to various theoretical and practical approaches to different media and their role within society. In the first part of this course, students will learn about the basics of media history, theory and analysis including film narrative, cinematic techniques, and genre analysis. The second part will be dominated by discussions, via close film analyses, of the cultural functions of media and the influence it has on political discourse and identities.
Texts for this seminar will entail Sally Potter’s Orlando adaptation, Amma Asante’s Belle, and the first season of the TV-series Fleabag, all of which are especially suited to explore the representation of women and gender in British film.
Reading and/or watching the assigned texts and films in preparation for each class is mandatory. In order to gain credits for this course, students will have to participate in a case study which they will present in class.
Texts: Relevant materials will be made available via moodle.
