Courses: Film on Photography: Practicing Time (ARTSH227B01)

Spring 2008

Cross-listed in Comparative Literature
Enrollment limited to 25 students.
An encounter with films, both experimental and traditional, that explicitly treat photographs as problems and as troubling reminders. Through careful viewing and close reading of pertinent texts by Roland Barthes, Walter Benjamin, Raymond Bellour, and others, we will consider how the difference between photography and film, as elaborated in these films, constitutes our “counter-memories."
