Topics in German Film History and Theory: Regimes of Spectacle in Weimar CinemaCourse Cancelled

Thomas Yaron Levin

Back to "Fall 2017" courses

Is film ideological? What is propaganda? How do mass media structure values and desires? Is there a politics of narration? These deeply contemporary questions will inform this interdisciplinary seminar in film history and theory and its interrogation of key works of expressionist, documentary, proletarian, avant-garde, queer, horror, and paranoid-thriller cinema from the Weimar Republic (1919-1933). Films and texts will be subject to socio-political, media-historical, and film theoretical analysis.
