CM135/ENG299 – Irish Cinema

This course examines the development of Irish National Cinema in historical, sociocultural, and contemporary contexts, with a particular emphasis on interrogating concepts and definitions of “Irishness” and Irish nationality as represented by various “colonizing” versus indigenous film making industries and traditions.

Included in this course will be an overview of various theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of film, so that students will be provided with an appropriate vocabulary in the academic study of film.
