CINE 550 - Time and Space in German Media Discourses

GRMN 550 | COML 552
401 | M 1-4pm

This seminar discusses the construction of space and time in German cinema and other media. These two notions will be explored throughout the history of ideas in philosophy, social theory and film aesthetics--including the shifts in different formations of the public, the discourse on the mass as social phenomenon and addressee of mass culture. Philosophers and film theorists such as Kracauer, Balazs, Heidegger and others will be discussed. All readings and discussion in English.
