Section Information for Fall 2024

This course is designed to give you expertise in audio-visual/narrative analysis and introduce you to key methods in the field of cinema studies. You will learn terminology for film’s stylistic and narrative elements, how to identify those elements, and how to analyze the ways that they can make meaning within a given film or genre. The first part of the course will isolate each of the major groups into which these elements can be placed—narrative, mise-en-scene, cinematography, sound, and editing. For the second part of the semester, we will focus more directly on textual and contextual analysis of different films, using central ideas in film theory, taking a close look at film genres, and considering developments in film history.
