HS 3430 - Film, Narrative and History

This course will explore film and narrative, and the way these tools shape our understanding of the human past.  How are complex events distilled into narrative?  With what result?  The course will introduce students to the concept of historiography - the “history of history” - and will explore the place of film and fiction in memorializing and interpreting the past.
