ENG 386 THE CINEMA-A direct engagement with some fragments of the major theories of film from the 1930’s to the present.  These primary documents will mediate an extended discussion of what cinema has been (or perhaps might have been), what it is (or perhaps might be), and what it is becoming (or perhaps might be becoming).   But we don’t only have to think about the cinema; sometimes the cinema encourages us to think about other things, many other things, as well.  Three take-home exams.  Required texts:  Timothy Corrigan and Patricia White, Critical Visions in Film Theory (2011); Thomas Elsaesser and Malte Hagener, Film Theory (2010).
