LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

Students will learn the basic concepts in film studies and acquire a conceptual framework necessary to think, write, and speak about film. They will also learn about crucial moments in American history as they are represented in major Hollywood productions. They will learn how to engage critically with a film from a historical perspective that pays attention to issues of class, race, ethnicity, gender, and environmental issues.

Lehrmethodik

Short lecture inputs, in-class discussion of films and relevant contextual material

Inhalt/e

In this proseminar, we will watch and discuss a number of American fiction films that engage with important moments in US American history from the first period of colonization up to the Great Depression. Relevant films include award-winning Hollywood productions such as Michael Mann’s Last of the Mohicans, Steve McQueen’s12 Years a Slave, Edward Zwick’s Glory, John Ford’s Stagecoach, Brian de Palma’s The Untouchables, and John Ford’s The Grapes of Wrath. We will ask ourselves how we can engage with these films critically while also learning from them about American history.

Attendance of the first session on October 17 is MANDATORY
