The Colloquium in Cinema and Theory is a one-credit graduate colloquium that considers issues in film theory and criticism. This course has two major aims: first, to acquaint students with how theory can be applied in the analysis of film and, second, to gather a group of students and faculty from different disciplines together to exchange ideas on approaches to the study of film.
The four sessions of the colloquium will be led by four different faculty members from the College of Arts and Humanities; each session focuses on a theoretical or methodological problem of particular interest and expertise of the faculty member leading the session. Each faculty member will assign texts (and possibly films) related to his or her session that students will prepare in advance.
Graduate students interested in Film Studies from any program or department in the College of Arts and Humanities are welcome.
