General description

The United States has been called a melting pot of different cultures and ethnicities. As a prominent constructor of American identity and a reflector of that identity both internationally and domestically, Hollywood has always had a major role in influencing the way both American and international audiences perceive various ethnic groups. The course examines the ways in which images of different ethnic groups have been constructed and re-constructed throughout the history of American cinema from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day. The course work includes an exam that will give the student 3 op. To earn extra study points the student has an option to write an essay worth 1, 2 or 3 op.
