SPAN 4520 - Experimental Screens:Mirrors, Memory, Media

(CA-AS) Satisfies Option 1.      
Fall. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Conducted in Spanish.

P. Keller.

Experimental media surfacing from different corners of the Iberian Peninsula, since the emergence of the avant-garde to the Internet age, has a long-standing history of exploring new modes of sensory perception-the relationship between technology and emotion, vision and time, abstract forms and concrete effects.  In this course, we will study a range of audiovisual materials from photomontage and short animation, to surrealist cinema and video art.  As we move through different registers, the goal will be to study the language of media, its aesthetic relation to literary forms, and its connection to poetry and philosophy.  Prior knowledge of film and media studies is helpful but not required.  Some viewing scheduled for outside of regular class times.
