HIST 387 (3)
This course examines the aesthetics of film and how various movies portray Western culture from the Roman period to the present. Three major components are cinemas as a popular art form, the rise of the West (including interaction with non-Western cultures), and the influence of movies on our understanding of history and culture. In exploring film and culture, the focus will be on themes, such as sacrifice, survival, family, and faith. Prerequisite: 3 credit hours in HIST. Same as ARTM 344.
