2. Mid-Term Exam : An exam will be held on XXX. It will be a closed-book exam. No books, lecture notes, handouts or photocopies are permitted into the exam hall. Each student will be tested how he/she understands the assigned readings, lectures, and films shown in the class. Students will have TWO HOURS to complete the questions. If you are late more than 10 minutes to the exam hall then you will lose your chance to take the exam. You will receive a zero for the final exam. The format and guidelines for the exam will be announced later. Make-up exams are only possible for emergency medical reasons or if okayed by your department chair. Students who miss their final exam are to submit their MC within 2 working days of the final exam and the MC has to be dated on the day of the exam. 3. Final Research Paper : You are to write one 8-page research paper . You should consult with your instructor well before the proposal is due, which is the 10 th week. You should email the proposal to your instructor. Your proposal should be approved by the instructor. In the paper, each student should discuss at least one pivotal period (the colonial period, the sixties, Korean New Wave in the 1980s, post-SHIRI Korean cinema, etc), film movements or dominant genres (i.e. melodrama, horror, historical epic, action, crime thriller, comedy, independent movement), technological innovations (i.e. cinemascope, the mode of digital filmmaking), industrial history (i.e. studio system, censorship /regulations, co-production), and the concept of national/transnational cinema. The most important thing is that your paper has a thesis, is focused, and is well researched. In your paper, you must cite at least FIVE written sources : books or articles, NOT web pages. Only two of the sources may be from the works assigned in class. The other sources must be ones that you find in the library or elsewhere. They must be scholarly sources All papers must be submitted on HARD COPY. No late papers will be accepted except in the case of documented dire emergencies. Be aware that this does not include computer problems.

Late papers will receive a zero . All references must be properly cited using either MLA (Modern Language Association) Style ( ) or Chicago Manual Style ( ) depending on your general familiarity.

    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.
