PHIL 000/5150 - Philosophy and Film (3 cr.)



Prerequisites
Students other than Philosophy majors must take FILM 3130   Film Theory prior to registering for this course.

Description
This course considers the relationship between philosophical reflection and aesthetic practice through the lens of cinema, with the purpose of engaging students of both philosophy and film theory in a cross-disciplinary investigation into cinema. The course will draw both from philosophical texts on film, and classical and contemporary film theory. Topics may include epistemological, ontological and ethical questions about film; the role of memory, subjectivity, identity, and desire in cinema; time, space, and the nature of the image; perspectives on sexuality, gender, and race in film; psychoanalytic, feminist, and postcolonial film theory; and analytic and continental approaches to film and philosophy.
