    MS 120 PO - Disability and Media

    When Offered: Offered alternate years; next offered fall 2021.
    Instructor(s): R. Engley
    Disability Studies, as defined by the Society for Disability Studies, ‘sits at the intersection of many overlapping disciplines in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences.’ This course aims to explore disability within and through the study of media objects (film, television, streaming video, and social media) and media theory. We will address the intersection of disability, queerness, and race, with a special focus on how racism and capitalism shape beliefs around ability and influence the representations of disability within popular media. This class aims to cover many different aspects of disability, including the perceptions surrounding mental and chronic illnesses as well as physical differences. Letter grade only. Prerequisites: MS 049 PO, MS 050 PO, MS 051 PO, or MS 092 PO.

    MS131 PO - The “Two”: Intersubjectivity Across Media

    When Offered: Offered alternate years; next offered fall 2021.
    Instructor(s): R. Engley
    Credit: 1

    This course focuses on theoretical questions regarding the “two”: the social tie, friendship, confession, and the relationship between the individual subject and the group. This class will ground its inquiry in the fundamental question: what do we make of the encounter between the one and an(other)? To answer this, we will examine a challenging set of philosophical texts and a range of media that revolve around the intersubjective relation (or non-relation) of two central characters or figures. Objects of study will include Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise and Abbas Kiarostami’s Certified Copy, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s television series Fleabag, Season 1 of Sarah Koenig’s podcast Serial and Fumito Ueda’s classic minimalist video game Ico. Letter grade only. Prerequisites: MS 049 PO  or MS 050 PO  or MS 051 PO  or MS 092 PO  or equivalents.

    MS140 PO - Screening Violence

    When Offered: Fall 2020.
    Instructor(s): K. Wynter
    Credit: 1

    The focus of this course is on representations of violence on screens and its widespread consumption. Through a range of theoretical texts and in conjunction with detailed analysis of select films and media, this course examines and debates the various, competing accounts of depicting, disseminating, and consuming images of violence. How did the omnipresence of scenes of violence on screens become a transnational phenomenon? Why does it have the power to move, excite or titillate us? What is our responsibility to images of violence, if any? These are some of the questions we will address as we chart the history of screening violence from early film and media to the present. Letter grade only.

    MS141 PO - Cinema, Sensation, and the Body

    When Offered: Last offered spring 2019.
    Instructor(s): K. Wynter
    Credit: 1

    To what extent does watching a movie imitate the body’s own sensorial encounters with the world? How do filmmakers use color, sound, lighting, movement, editing and space to create embodied experience? This course is an introduction to these and related questions by examining both cinema’s bodily representations and the relationship between the viewer’s body and the events on the screen. Our approach is organized around a diverse cross-section of film screenings that include art cinema, experimental cinema, Hollywood melodrama, global cinema, and body horror. Turning attention to what is at stake when we consider what it means to feel cinema permits a wide range of critical approaches to screen media including continental philosophy, media theory, genre theory, experimental cinema, and feminist thought. Throughout the semester, we will become better acquainted with the sensuous facets of cinema along with the social, political, and aesthetic possibilities cinema affords when understood as both appealing to a sensuous body and being a sensuous body in its own right. Prerequisites: MS 049 PO , or MS 050 PO , or MS 051 PO  or equivalent. Letter grade only.

    MS146 PO - Temporalities of the Moving Image

    When Offered: Fall 2018.
    Instructor(s): K. Wynter
    Credit: 1

    This course will concentrate on time as a category of analysis. Cinema possesses distinct affinities with the rationalization of labor and standardization of time that took place at the end of the nineteenth century, and yet it also provides a way of negotiating and resisting these processes, as it imagines alternative relations to standardized time. The course begins from the proposition that cinema provided a way for the twentieth century to re-think its changed relation to time after industrial modernity. Topics will include amnesia, boredom, duration, distraction, memory, the supposed death of cinema, real time, and simultaneity. Letter grade only. Prerequisites: MS 049 PO  , MS 050 PO  , or MS 051 PO  .

    MS147H PO - Reality, Realism and the Real

    When Offered: Last offered spring 2018.
    Instructor(s): J. Friedlander; H. Krips
    Credit: 1

    In the humanities, Realism has been criticized for impressing upon audiences the illusion that they are watching real life events unfold spontaneously before their eyes - an illusion that takes on a politically conservative role as a vehicle for the circulation of dominant ideological meanings. In the sciences, by contrast, Realism has attracted far more favorable reviews: for example, Einstein writes that “If one renounces this assumption [of Realism]…then I do not see what physics is supposed to describe.” In this course we will examine the interplay between these two attitudes towards Realism. In particular we will suggest that it is possible to recuperate a politically progressive role for Realism as an aesthetic-representational form. Letter grade only. Prerequisites: MS 049 PO , MS 050 PO  or MS 051 PO  , or 5C equivalents. [T]

    MS148A PO - Topics in Media Theory: Surveillance and the Media: Observation, Power, and Control

    When Offered: Last offered spring 2018.
    Instructor(s): M. Andrejevic
    Credit: 1

    This course considers the social and cultural implications of increasingly pervasive and comprehensive forms of surveillance (visual, auditory, data) enabled by emerging digital media. It situates contemporary examples of the mediated forms of surveillance and monitoring in historical and theoretical perspective, drawing on critical theories of the relationship between surveillance, observation, power and control. The course will explore a range of ways of thinking about the roles of observer and observed as well as the relationship between media technologies and techniques of observation. Letter grade only. Prerequisites: MS 049 PO , MS 050 PO  or MS 051 PO , or 5C equivalents.

    MS148B PO - Drone Theory

    When Offered: Last offered fall 2019.
    Instructor(s): M.Andrejevic
    Credit: 1

    This class draws on the figure of the drone to consider contemporary developments in media theory and practice. It invokes the drone – understood not just as a weaponized device but as forming part of a distributed, mobile, interactive, information network – to explore emerging logics of interactivity, data processing and automation. The course will rely upon critical theory to examine the development of asymmetrical power and remote control associated with drones and will situate the drone within the cultural imaginary, drawing upon the historical relationship between military and media technology. The goal will be to use the figure of the drone to illuminate more general logics of cybernetic control – their fantasies and actualities and the ways in which these relate to historical figures of automata, telepresence and action-at-a-distance. Additionally, the class will explore and critique theoretical developments that anticipate the forms of knowing, sensing and experiencing associated with the figure of the drone. Letter grade only.

    MS148D PO - Powers of Pleasure

    When Offered: Fall 2020.
    Instructor(s): J. Friedlander
    Credit: 1

    This course interrogates John Fiske’s contention that “pleasure may be the bait on the hook of hegemony, but it is always more than this; it always involves an element that escapes the system of power.” With this claim in mind, we will: 1) evaluate key arguments in the field regarding pleasure’s complicity with dominant ideological frameworks–particularly with regard to normative views of gender, race, class and sexuality; 2) consider ways in which the critique of pleasure itself may collude with patriarchal, racist, clasist and heteronormative systems of thought; and 3) explore the possibilities for pleasure to undermine established systems of power. Letter grade only. Prerequisites: MS 049 PO , MS 050 PO , and MS 051 PO .

    MS148G PO - Film Theory

    When Offered: Spring 2019.
    Instructor(s): T. Connelly
    Credit: 1

    This course develops theoretical approaches to the analysis of film as it enters the digital era. The course starts out with classic film theory and concludes with a consideration of the impact of digitization. Along the way we will learn a number of terms, theoretical concepts and methodological approaches to critically evaluate and analyze fictional films, including formalism, realism, genre, ideology, semiotics, structuralism, psychoanalysis and postmodernism. We will consider the question of how forms of analog film fare in the digital era and what is meant by the pronouncement of the “death of film.” Letter grade only. Prerequisites: MS 049 PO  , MS 050 PO  , or MS 051 PO  .

    MS150 PO - Seriality Studies

    When Offered: Each semester.
    Instructor(s): R. Engley
    Credit: 1

    Serial media is ubiquitous. The method of distributing installments of a larger narrative over time has seen increasing prominence in a variety of media forms, ever since the birth of mass media and the serial novel in the mid-19th century. From the early film serials of The Perils of Pauline and Flash Gordon to Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, from the popular radio serials of The Shadow and The Lone Ranger to true crime podcasts Serial and My Favorite Murder, from the development of the traditional network television series to the ‘binge model’ of Netflix, serial narrative has enabled complex longform storytelling and engaged and enraged audiences. But to study seriality is not just to observe an industry strategy for releasing narrative. Nor is it sufficient to simply acknowledge how seriality ensnares author, text, and audience. The study of seriality involves excavating and articulating a comprehensive theory. Looking to psychoanalysis, existentialism, radical feminism, and Black Marxism, with supplemental examination of narrative, audience, and authorship studies, this course will aim to understand seriality as a textual, social, psychical, and political form. Prerequisites: one of MS 049 PO , MS 050 PO , MS 051 PO , MS 092 PO  or equivalents. Letter grade only.

    When Offered: Offered alternate years; next offered fall 2020.
    Instructor(s): K. Wynter
    Credit: 1

    This course will critically examine the role of media (including, but not limited to: cinema, television, music, journalism, and video games) in facilitating, disseminating, and challenging social, political, and cultural constructions of ‘blackness.’ We will analyze the production and consumption of black representations in mainstream American media and explore the ways these processes influence basic assumptions about social roles, expectations, and norms that tend to inhere to concepts of ‘blackness’ and black popular culture. Students will be encouraged to develop a critical and political consciousness around historical formations of black identity, their own participation in embracing and/or resisting black representations, and the impact of black popular culture on their lived experiences. The course will be structured as a seminar and will emphasize collaborative thinking and discussion. Each class will feature a media component, a brief lecture putting the assigned media and readings into context, followed by collective discussion and contribution. Letter grade only.

    MS175 PO - “Horror” and The American Horror Film

    When Offered: Spring 2021.
    Instructor(s): K. Wynter
    Credit: 1

    Of all the film genres that partition and divide the products of American cinema, the horror genre has proven to be the most durable and the most easily adaptable to the shifting historical circumstances and socio-political anxieties to which it runs parallel. This course examines some of the key factors that have contributed to the horror genres capacity to maintain its continued viability in popular culture across a wide range of media including graphic novels, video art, and interactive gaming. Beginning with the modern period of the American horror film and then expanding beyond its physical and ideological borders, this course is designed to encourage students to challenge the ideas that have become associated with the term “horror,” and to consider whether some other term or terms may be better suited to describe the types of feelings horror films and its related forms of media actually inspire. We will consider some of the following questions: What is horror? Do horror genre films truly inspire horror or are we, as participants, moved by some other affect or response? Is it possible to locate cinematic representations of horror and its experience outside of the horror genre? Prerequisites: MS 049 PO , or MS 050 PO , or MS 051 PO  or equivalent. Letter grade only.

    MS180 PO - The War Film

    When Offered: Last offered spring 2020.
    Instructor(s): K. Wynter
    Credit: 1

    This course surveys the history of the war film. Our focus will center mainly upon Hollywood cinema’s depiction of warfare, but the course also expands beyond American borders to explore the genre in a global context. While the Hollywood war film can often serve as a platform for glorifying armed conflict and celebrating the heroism of the combatant, it has also historically been a site of political and ideological critique, and has served as a barometer of the social mood and public perception of warfare. Throughout the semester we will examine representations of war in cinema across the 20th century and into the 21st century, tracking its impact and its aftermath at the level of the political and social, but also at the level of the subjective and the psychological. We will develop the critical and theoretical frameworks necessary to grapple with aesthetics of violence, reading work from Prince, Massumi, Baurillard, Virilio, Foucault, and Scarry, among others. Topics will include, torture, preemption, genocide, trauma, deterrence, revenge, reintegration and forgiveness. Letter grade only. Prerequisites: MS 050 PO  or equivalent.
