- History as Film
|Coordinator(s)||Erin Ihde (email@example.com)|
This unit explores the phenomenon of history as film. 'Historical movies' and other related forms of audio-visual media are enormously influential in shaping our understanding of the past, yet they are necessarily bound to the cultural and political concerns of the society which produces them. They tend to tell us more about the production and consumption of public memory in our own time, than about the past itself. This unit examines a range of film genres chosen from a variety of places and time periods. Students will consider the artistic and technical aspects as well as the challenges of producing history as film, and explore issues of interpretation, accuracy, perspective and representation.
Note: Students are expected to purchase prescribed material. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
