Film Experience: theories and approaches, 7.5 credits

This course explores film experience from a chosen theoretical perspective (e.g. phenomenological, cultural studies, new materialist, cognitive). It offers enhanced insights into film theoretical traditions and schools, emphasizing the methodological question of applying the chosen approach to a particular genre, period, style or a thematic area. The course draws from topical or on-going research projects, and its special focus varies from term to term.

On completion of the course, students should be able to demonstrate:

- an enhanced knowledge of a chosen film theoretical question

- an advanced familiarity with a film theoretical tradition and its methodological consequences

- an ability to critically formulate and evaluate research problems within this particular domain of cinema studies.

Further course information will appear soon on this page. Until then, information can be found on the department website.
