I'm not sure if there any many recent and comprehensive studies of these kinds, but a starting place might be guide to teaching film published by the Modern Language Association and edited by Gerald Mast.  It provides a brief essays on different aspects of teaching film within the English curriculum.  It's now out of print, but I recall seeing a notice that a new version of a similar book for MLA is in the works.

Subject: [SCREEN-L] Film study in the discipline of English

Can anyone direct me scholarly materials on the development of film study
within English departments?

I'm  especially interested in 1) histories of film study as situated within
English departments and 2) perspectives on the role of film studies within
the broader function of the college English department (as the locus of
literary study, composition instruction, etc.)
