This course will combine readings on globalization and cosmopolitanism with case studies about the formation of a global consciousness through cinema and other audiovisual media. We will draw on anthropology as well as film and media studies, incorporating an element of field work, researching festivals, distribution circuits, new media platforms, and spectatorship. Close textual analysis of films in terms of staging, acting, and cinematography will form the basis of our investigations. Taught in English.
