Post-Colonial Perspectives on Audiovisual Media

  • 15 credits

This course on basic level in Cinema Studies is ideal for exchange students and free movers, and also masterstudents - interested in the topic of postcolonialism and moving images. Taught all in English and in Filmhuset.

The course introduces postcoloniality both as a theoretical framework and an audiovisual field which address issues of cultural, ethnic and racialized differences.

After the course, students are expected to be able to: - Understand and reflect on introduced concepts and approaches in postcolonial film/media studies. - Apply them to analysis of audiovisual media.

The main focus of the course is on questions of visibility and privilege, marginalization and tolerance which relate postcolonial (media) theory to feminist and queer studies.

Along with media viewings, the course consists of lectures, discussions, small writing assignments and a home exam.
