ENG 3755 - Special Topics: World Cinema

Credits: 4
World cinema by its very nature is transnational, as local and global concerns interact, and international production and distribution, enhanced since the 1990’s by an ever evolving and borderless digital technology, underscore the increasing globalization of the film industry.  This special topics course will focus on specific dimensions of world cinema such as Nordic Noir, New Wave Cinema, Third (World) Cinema, and Auteur Cinema. Students will explore films from specific areas of the world, and also study the global dynamics of the film industry. Finally, they will learn how film, as well as other dimensions of pop culture, functions as sites for collective debate over transnational politics and relations.
