This course provides an introduction to film, television, and media. You will learn the critical vocabulary and methods of media analysis, and use this knowledge to make your voice heard in the form of audiovisual essays rather than written papers. The course is designed to build basic video editing and sound recording skills throughout the semester--no prior experience is needed. With a focus on representations of race, gender, class, and sexual identities, you will learn how to assess film, television, and digital media with an eye (and ear) keenly attuned to the ways that style shapes the meanings of the media that surround all of us in everyday life. We are committed to a model of student-centered learning, so your experience in this course will not resemble a typical, large-lecture format. Instead, we will engage in interactive, peer learning activities such as discussions and debates.

Students with verified schedule conflicts that prevent them from attending designated laboratory sessions will be able to make other arrangements for screening the assigned required films
