Prior coursework in Film and Media Studies is recommended, but not required. The key terms for discussion will reflect the complexity of how we define “media.” Topics may include: mass reproduction, authenticity and aura; print, time, and national consciousness; advertising, glamor, and myth; photography, indifference, and atrocity; cinema, race, gender, and spectatorship; television, liveness, and celebrity; digital media, buffering, and virality. Professor Rangan.2019-20: Offered in Spring 2020Other years: Offered in Spring 2018(Offered as ENGL 288 and FAMS 218) How does film invite us to see?
Classes will combine lecture and conversation, and assignments will include several short critical essays and a midterm and final exam. And how does it invite us to think, to feel, to communicate, to gather together?
Hey everyone, I'm pretty new on here, but please hear me out, and try and help me, because like most students, I'm starting to panic!!
I'm in Year 11, and I'm doing Media Studies AQA (as you can tell).
There will be a significant amount of work and travel outside of class meetings.

How can we address a phenomenon that has disappeared the moment we apprehend it?
The course will culminate in contributions to a web-based documentary archive of Pioneer Valley soundscapes. Requisite: MUSI 111, 112, or consent of the instructor. How does memory operate in our critical perception of an event? These are a few of the questions we will explore in this course, as we discuss critical, theoretical, and compositional approaches in a broad range of multidisciplinary performance phenomena emerging from European—primarily German—culture in the twentieth century.She has now said that the deadline for coursework is March 28th - let me tell you about the coursework. Then I read something about a "cross media" investigation - isn't that unit 4?!? Who has done this assignment yet, and what exactly did you do? Now, we got in a radio DJ to help us produce our programme, which we have done with great success. She said it mustn't be more than 12 pages - what has to be marked though?To me, there are 2 parts to all 3 tasks - creative and analytical. Therefore, we had to create a magazine cover for our creative task. We had to analyse two magazine covers, which I did. I've been doing as she says so far, as she is the one marking our coursework. The terms for discussion will include, among others: , montage, realism, visual pleasure, and the avant-garde. As an introduction to the study of cinema, this course cultivates in students what Vertov called “the Kino-eye.” Our emphasis will be on narrative film, but with some attention paid to experimental, documentary, and animated works as well. Spring semester: Professor Guilford.2019-20: Offered in Fall 2019 and Spring 2020Other years: Offered in Spring 2008, Spring 2009, Spring 2010, Spring 2011, Fall 2011, Spring 2012, Fall 2012, Spring 2013, Fall 2013, Spring 2014, Fall 2014, Spring 2015, Fall 2015, Spring 2016, Fall 2016, Spring 2017, Spring 2018, Fall 2018(Offered as ENGL 280 and FAMS 210) An introduction to cinema studies through consideration of a few critical and descriptive terms, together with a selection of various films (classic and contemporary, foreign and American) for illustration and discussion. Many others have echoed this idea about cinema’s powerful impact on our ways of seeing and knowing the world.Now, I did my exam last year on Reality TV, getting 100%.My teacher was pushing for me to go for the Double Award, but failed to inform me the amount of work needed for Unit 4. In one breath, she says we have to compare two methods of film promotion.A varied selection of films for study and criticism, partly to illustrate the main elements of film language and partly to pose challenging texts for reading and writing. This course will take what might seem a radical counter-position to such assumptions–looking at the ways television teaches us what it is and even trains us in potential critical practices for investigating it. Professor Hastie.2019-20: Offered in Fall 2019Other years: Offered in Fall 2010, Spring 2013, Fall 2013, Fall 2016(Offered as ENGL 284 and FAMS 216) Media are not just audiovisual texts but also technological infrastructures, economic enterprises, ideological apparatuses, and artistic practices.

This course treats cinema as an international art form: we will examine a wide range of films from many countries over the past century and more.However, she doesn't seem to know what she's doing.Luckily, it's a class of 3, but we still have lost all direction.
