CS/FS 260 - Irish Culture Through Film
This course examines the role of film in the construction of Irish cultural identity and notions of Irishness. We will discuss key themes and cinematic representations of Ireland and the Irish and the development of cinematic genres in Irish filmmaking over time. We will explore the evolution of Ireland on film – from early representations of Ireland and the Irish by U.S. and British filmmakers to the emergence of an indigenous Irish film industry in the 1970s and 1980s to contemporary Irish film.
