Course Description

European Cinema and Genre

Joint-listed with MSCH-F 398 and EURO-W 406

Taking a comparative, transnational approach, this course offers an overview of European cinema as an evolving art and as a means of tracing the evolution of European society, politics, and identity from the early twentieth century through the present, using representative films from Belgium, France, Germany, Sweden, and the Soviet Union. We will also investigate how cinema has shaped national identities and promoted international competition and collaboration. In so doing, our study of film will naturally touch upon a variety of other disciplines, such as history, psychology, sociology, political science, and gender studies. This class is taught in English.

Films should be viewed prior to class on the date assigned: a film showing is organized on Mondays at 7:15 p.m.

Class number: 11999
