Expanded Course Description
This course aims to develop your media literacy by providing you with a precise set of critical tools for analyzing moving image texts. Although our primary focus will be on the formal analysis of image and sound rather than media history or social issues, we will study the interplay between artistic and social conventions and the role of ideology in shaping the meaning of media texts. We will view and critique numerous film and television clips, as well as several feature-length films. Online group projects will enable students to shape course content by choosing media clips that illustrate concepts covered by readings and lectures. While not oriented toward the technical or industrial aspects of media productions, the course builds skills that are beneficial to both media producers and consumers.
