Courses: Movies, Fascism & Communism (ENGLB323001)

Spring 2008

Class Number: 1145
III
New Course: Movies and mass politics emerged together, altering
entertainment and government in strangely similar ways. Fascism and
Communism claimed an inherent relation to the masses and hence to
movies; Hollywood rejected such claims. We will examine films
alluding to fascism or communism, to understand them as commenting on
political debates and on the mass experience of movie going.
Enrollment limited to 15 students, selected by lottery.
