COLT 42.05 Cultures of Surveillance: Globalization and Film Trilogies

Who’s watching whom, and why does it matter?  A number of 21st century popular film trilogies highlight cultures of surveillance within the context of globalization. Is there a relationship between plots based on global surveillance techniques and the fact that these plots are so successfully developed through film per se? What is the implied role of the viewer in such films? In what way does trilogy as a form of fragmented storytelling contribute to our understanding of surveillance across borders? Who identifies with whom in these tripartite visual narratives of globalization? What is the relationship among intertwined plotlines, global/international intrigue, geo-political borders, the role of the hero, and the role of viewers?

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
