ENGL 560 - Topics in Film

(3 credits)
This course will explore topics in Film Studies, a field devoted to the critical and textual analysis of film as a creative medium and cultural document. Topics may include film directors or auteurs; genres; national cinemas; styles, movements or subcultures; time periods; film theory; or socio-historical or thematic topics. The course utilizes film criticism and theory to develop students’ skills in analyzing narrative texts that employ verbal and visual rhetoric, and thus it prepares students to be sharper analysts of our increasingly visual and multimodal textual world. Repeatable for diffferent topics: may earn a maximum of nine credits. Offered alternate years.
