FILM 42.22 Moviegoing in America

This course serves as an introduction to the history of moviegoing in the United States. Students will learn about the earliest moviegoing spaces and trace the social, cultural, and technological dynamics of when and how the places of moviegoing changed over time. The course will introduce and extend discussions of various theories of spectatorship, including feminist theories and critical race theory, in order to better understand the experiences of peoples of color, immigrants, and women in this history. Students will learn how to apply these theories to the analysis of film and to their own archival and ethnographic research projects.

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.
