FILM AND VIDEO SYLLABUS Paul M. Bielecki 201:J3/J6 Mon, Thurs: 10.00-11.40 & 12.00-1.20 Fall 2010 Course Description: Over the course of a little more than a century advances in technology have helped to create a ‘visual culture’ which, for better or worse, has expanded beyond traditional, national borders to create a new sense of the world and of one’s self which is fueled by the viewer’s interaction with the moving image. Film, television, and more recently the Internet, have all helped to create a new sense of identity and unique understanding of the world which proved to be impossible in previous time periods. This course will be looking at some possible ways of understanding how technology has impacted our understanding of what art, entertainment, and reality are. Through selected scholarly readings and research, students will be able to take part in an ongoing discussion of how technology surrounding the moving image continues to shape our lives. Course Objectives: Students will develop their own area of research within the overall topic of the course, and by completing all the activities of this course, culminating in their final research paper, will gain some expertise within this topic area, and will be able to speak and write about it with clarity, originality, and a well rounded perspective.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
