Literature & Film Studies

students in film class

Program summary

The Literature and Film Studies program allows students to study cinema both as a specific art form with its own history and "language" and as a medium that emerges in the broader context of literary and other cultural production. The program encourages comparative thinking and offers students the opportunity to engage critically with various issues including the place of technology and visual culture in modernity; the politics of the screen image; the relation between literature and cinema; the role of cinema in globalism and consumer culture; and how the continuing evolution of the moving image and "screen culture" situates us as readers and as viewers.
