This unit deals with the language of national cinema and television, revealing the historical, ideological and cultural assumptions which find expression in fictional film and TV. The emphasis will be on learning to read those screen products that are seen as other in relation to Hollywood realism. The unit will look at how film and television products are bound up with the negotiation of both cultural and national identity and globalisation.
- Students having successfully completed this unit will be able to discern the ways in which historical, ideological and cultural assumptions are embedded and embodied in national film and TV products, and will also be able to discuss these matters competently both orally and in writing.
Up to three hours per week consisting of lectures, tutorials, and screenings.
