Module SCREENING SOCIAL CHANGE: CAPITALISM, CINEMA AND TELEVISION

Module code: SO343
Credits: 5
Semester: 2
Quota: 100
Department: SOCIOLOGY
International: Yes
Overview Overview
 

In this course, we consider how the complex processes of social change are articulated through two of the principal cultural forms available to us: cinema and television. The historical frame of the programme will stretch half a century, from the political and economic turbulence of the 1970s through to the political and economic turbulence of today. In class we will consider how the social and cultural evolutions of recent decades have been reflected and refracted, critiqued and affirmed though a range of movies and tv series. Taught in a way that is designed to be interactive and participative, the course is intended to provide a critical document of how capitalism has evolved over the last couple of generations.
