Film History - Specialisation

7.5 credits

The course involves in-depth studies of film history, where the focus is on the theoretical, ideological and practical aspects of how film history is written and what this means when it comes to archives, selection, canonization, source material and the film's place in society. The course will make thematic swoops in film history from 1895 until about 1980. Geographically, the course will cover several regions in addition to the Swedish, European and American film. The student is given the opportunity to choose one of two time periods to examine more closely. The two periods are 1895-1930 (The Silent Film Era) and 1930-1980 (The Classical Era).

The course language is Swedish and you need to have passed Swedish on level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages to be eligable for admission.
