SOC 330LEC Cinematic Sociology

Lecture

Explores how films are a vehicle for social commentary, analysis, and criticism, particularly with regard to controversial topics and social problems. This is not a class on film theory or production or the film industry, but rather the sociological implications of film. Cinematic Sociology explores the dual role of film: a window into globalizing cultures and a social force that shapes globalizing trends. Sociological theories and methods are used both to see films analytically and to extend sociological investigation beyond the classroom, connecting what is viewed to real world observations.
