By closely studying a selected number of feature films, television series, digital technologies, short films and other screen media, this course aims to explore the nature of audiovisual representation, the complex interplay between genre and screen and the theoretical perspectives which underpin Screen Studies. We will approach a wide range of texts and theories to study screen genre, transmediality and Screen Studies theory. Students will develop strategies to understand the diversity of screen media forms and scrutinise the role and impact of screens in contemporary, transnational and transmedial contexts.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- demonstrate a strong appreciation of the role of genre in Screen Studies;
- analyse the relationship between screen texts and their corresponding theories;
- study and characterise different screen media forms and their contexts; and
- carry out close analysis of screen texts.
