Title / Título (Original)

National Cinema Study: Mexico

Description / Descripción

This course will examine different histories, approaches and methodologies related to the study of national cinema, tying in aspects of culture, politics, aesthetics and economics. Throughout the course, we will study the Mexican film tradition as case studies and examples. It should be clear, however, that the primary pedagogical thrust of this course concentrates on larger implications of national cinema writ large; to that end, each student will choose a different national cinematic tradition to examine, culminating in a term-long research project.
