SCRN 231 - Film Theory


This seminar examines a wide range of theories regarding motion picture reception, and to a lesser extent, production. Topics will include classic arguments about the aesthetic purpose of film and the place of authorship in screen texts, as well as more contemporary concerns such as queer theory, cognitivism, and post-structuralism. The course will also take up the anti-theory movement that has arisen in recent years.

Anticipated Terms Offered: Offered every other year
