For much of its history, cinema has been both loved and reviled for its ability to move audiences and make us “feel.” In this course, you will explore our complex investments in cinema’s affective capacities. Moving across various genres and forms – for example silent film melodramas, long form television drama, crossover films, documentary, queer cinema and independent cinema – you will examine some of the ways in which affect and emotion are summoned and enacted in screen media. Through a close study of key concepts and debates in the discipline and screen texts, you will gain an understanding of how and why questions about screen(ing) emotions continue to be so important today.
