Theories of Cinema

CWL 504

Same as ENGL 504 and MACS 504. See MACS 504.

This semester the course begins with a review of basic and formative film theory, understood within the historical context in which it was and is written and received. Building on this groundwork, the course then moves on to consider rhetorical aspects of film theory and asks what theories film scholars can use to address the relationships among film, politics, and society.
