Religion and Moving Images

(3 0 cr.) - Session(s): Fall, Spring | Course Alternate Years

This course explores religious meaning in moving images (film or television).  It will consider a wide variety of sources – from independent to mainstream Hollywood blockbusters, to television shows and mini-series – and will provide students with background knowledge of a variety of ways religious meaning is constructed and explored in films and television.  After introductory readings on film theory, students will critically assess the form and content of films and/or television shows selected from different eras, cultures, or religious perspectives to explore how the moving image can give rise to religious meaning.
