MDST 3601 - Screening History: Media and Cultural Memory

The overall goal of the course is for students to recognize the ways in which film and TV representations of history are constructed through struggles in the present. Students will evaluate different narrative and formal strategies used to remember the past for their ideological, historical, ethical and commercial implications. We will discuss the uses of the past in the present, including nostalgia and the politics of counter-memory.
