Course summary

This highly-regarded taught programme offers the opportunity to engage in cross-disciplinary investigation of various aspects of cinema and moving image culture, and has diverse routes available via theoretical, vocational and practice-based perspectives to provide a uniquely flexible course. These routes allow students to combine vocational, theoretical and practice-based modules as preferred. Theoretical modules involve study of British, American, European, Far Eastern and Middle Eastern Cinemas. Here, students will examine how film and television texts produced in these regions relate to their historical, social, and cultural contexts through a variety of critical and theoretical approaches, which range from aesthetics as cinematic discourse to the implications of terrorism for film and its audiences. Vocational choices, which are available throughout, include Teaching Film and Media, Becoming an Academic, Film Festivals, Film Festivals Independent Study (that offer opportunities to attend a film festival, and to be involved in film festival organisation) and Film Journalism, supported by expert film critics, that develops skills required for the writing of film reviews and articles in journals such as Sight and Sound. There are practice-based options to undertake experimental and documentary film production, and scriptwriting.


Typical modules may include: 9/11 narratives (cinema and the war on terror); space, place and culture in contemporary American cinema; teaching film and media; the poetics and practices of eastern European cinema; crisis, conflict, culture (cinemas of the middle east); picturing Britain (aesthetics, discourse and culture in British cinema); research, writing, referencing (routes to academic success); cinemas of the orient (texts and contexts of far eastern film); screening horror (Trauma, fear, and fantasy in film); screening the holocaust and beyond.
