MHIS 429: Topics in Film + Media Theory

This advanced seminar course enables students to focus on a key topic in film and media (moving-image) theory. What role does the moving image play in contemporary philosophical and cultural debates? How have distinct theoretical lineages shaped the cinema as a mode of artistic practice and thought? How are emerging theoretical perspectives shaping the form, circulation, and reception of media objects today? While the specific topic and entry-point into these questions will vary each semester, the course will emphasize critical viewing, reading, and writing about moving-image aesthetics and theory.
