AMST 4470 - American Film Noir

This seminar examines the phenomenon of American Film Noir produced during the 1940s and 50s.  Using urban culture to frame debates about films noir, it explores the ways in which “the city” is represented as a problematic subject and a frequent resource immediately before and after World War II.  The course also discusses the influences of early twentieth-century photography, American Scene art, and Abstract Expressionist painting.
