SPAN 3485 - Cinematic Cities

(crosslisted) COML 3485 , FREN 3485 , ITAL 3485  
Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

P. Keller, C. Lawless.

Beginning in the early days of silent cinema, a rich tradition of what are called “city films,” combines technological innovation with the exploration of specific urban spaces.  Students in this class will learn how to think about the possibilities of limits of cinema as a way of “knowing” a city and its cultures, including linguistic cultures.  This course will be offered in English and is open to all students.  The focus will be on the relationship between the cinema and the development of urban centers, including Madrid, Rome, Paris, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, and Venice.  Films will be shown outside of regular class meeting times, in the original languages with English subtitles.
