FILM 41.16 Space and Genre

This course explores representations of space and place in Hollywood genres. We will examine the musical, the melodrama, and film noir to discern how space informs and complicates their conventions; discuss how cinematic representation of specific spaces (the apartment, the city, the hotel) blurs genre boundaries; and consider how race, gender, and sexuality influence cinematic representations of spaces. Students will produce their own video essays to intervene in current scholarly debates on cinema, genre, and spatial representation.

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.
