Film, Media, Culture
|Course code FMCS1000||Units 10||Level 1000||Faculty of Education and ArtsSchool of Humanities and Social Science|
So many of the defining moments in our lives are accompanied by an experience with the media or have grown out of our relationship with the media. The media are a central part of how we live, work and play. They are not an outside influence; they are part of the culture that surrounds us and therefore of whom we are. This course provides a widescreen, interdisciplinary framework for the analysis of our complex relationship with film and other media. It will introduce students to a range of theoretical approaches to the study of film, media and culture, and their application to specific texts, situations and events.
