COMM 35006. British Media and Film This course examines and analyzes the culture, economics, creative process and influence of British Television, media and film. Through rigorous viewing, analysis, and reading we will look at the historical perspectives as well as the current issues and themes in British television and film, creatively, technologically, and financially. We will consider some of the distinctive modes and genres of British film and television, the special relationship between film and television in the British context, and the innovative strategies British filmmakers and television producers have used to cope with increasingly transnational forms of cinematic production, distribution, and reception. This class offers an opportunity not only to acquaint yourself with British cinema and media but to learn something about contemporary British culture and society.
