ARTH 6186 - Afr American Diaspora Cinema

(3) Visual culture that examines significant themes in US film history focusing on the development of African American cinema, and filmed representations of the African American experience. The history of African American film production is considered within historical, cultural, social, and political contexts. Readings in film criticism and theory examine the development of African American cinema as a particular genre of film and aesthetic expression. Diversity and difference are critical themes in the representation of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and class in cinema, a quintessentially American art form. From an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective, film representative of the broader African Diaspora will also be examined.
