We will examine basic theories of film and their relationship to the practice of “close analysis.” How do film theorists discuss the experience of film, spectatorship, apparatus, and production in a variety of theoretical contexts and explore major film theories such as those of formalism, realism, auteurism, star/celebrity culture, gender, psychoanalysis, genre, race, cultural and media studies? Theories are meant to provide students with a vocabulary for close analysis of film and will stress the many ways of seeing and experiencing film. Our primary responsibility will be finding ways to speak and write about film and its significance as a complex aesthetic and social sign. Films discussed in class iinclude works by Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, Coen Brothers, Christopher Nolan, Ryan Coogler, Kathryn Bigelow, Lana and Lily Wachowski, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, Benny and Josh Safdie, Peter Jackson, and Alejandro Iñárritu.

Fall 2024 Course Details

How is the university going to choose a new dean for the College of Liberal Arts? Who decides when to change a study lounge into a built-up triple dorm room? Where can needy families on the Seacoast get a free meal, and why are those places getting busier? Why doesn’t the university build a parking garage?

This is the class where you’ll learn to seek answers to these kinds of questions and tell the true stories they reveal. By researching and writing weekly news articles, you’ll begin to grasp the practice of journalism and better understand the role of journalists in our society.

Responsible, accurate journalism is more important now than it ever was. We’re bombarded with so much information every day that it’s hard to determine what’s reliable and what’s not. The world needs great journalists to tell important stories.

This is a required course for all English/Journalism majors.

Fall 2024 Course Details: On Race

Come laugh at racism with us! “And there’s something funny—there’s always something a little funny in all our disasters, if one can face the disaster,” said James Baldwin in his “The Uses of the Blues.” This semester, we will apply several different critical approaches to explore and understand what race is. Of our special concern will be the claim that race is a culturally (not biologically) constructed category. The reading list will include literary texts (Toni Morrison’s “Recitatif”), works of African American comedians (Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, etc.), philosophical texts (W. E. B. Du Bois, K. A. Appiah, etc.) as well as some legal documents (recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions concerning affirmative action) and Henry Louis Gates’s recent, Stony the Road.

The general goal of the course is to improve the student’s ability to speak and think critically about race and race relations in the U.S. 

This course satisifes the 'Race, Gender & Postcolonial Studies' requirement for English Majors. 

This course satisfies the Race & Racial Theories requirement for English Literature, English: TBD, English/Law 3+3, English Teaching Majors.
