AMST 323 - Baltimore in Film

(3.00)
This course fosters an in-depth discussion of representations of Baltimore through film. Specifically, we review the works of various directors/writers who utilize Baltimore as the landscape of their film(s) or centralize Baltimore as its story. The works of directors/writers who hail from this metropolitan area are also a key focal point of the course. Through an analysis of these works, we explore the various representations of Baltimore and allow students to think critically about Baltimore as a city. Readings on film studies, media studies, and critical studies research provide a broader understanding of how cities are portrayed in film. Recommended Preparation One lower-level social sciences or humanities course focused on American society or culture.
