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

Back to "Fall 2017" courses

An introduction to the interdisciplinary study of film history and theory through a careful consideration of selected key works of expressionist, documentary, proletarian, avant-garde, queer, horror, and paranoid-thriller cinema (both silent and sound) produced during the Weimar Republic.  Films and texts will be subjected to close readings, situated in their socio-political, media-historical and cultural context, and examined in the light of the reigning debates in film criticism and aesthetics.
