ENGL 2540 - Global Issues in Film

3 cr. 3 hr. Offered every third semester.

This course introduces students to crucial global issues of our time, many of which principally concern developing, non-Western nations, but all of which will impact the future of the U.S. Through film viewings, readings, writing, and discussion, students will engage with global problems and learn to develop their own critical viewpoints on complex issues. Students will analyze both documentaries and narrative films as artistic treatments of human problems. Their final project will require an in-depth study of, and presentation on, media representations of global issues pertaining to one nation. This course is cross-listed as IDIS 2540 /POLS 2540 . CTW, GDCN

Prerequisite(s): ENGL 1200 .
