Communication Studies 151 Contemporary International Film/Television
(3 credit hours). Study of contemporary film/television within a specific
international context, such as Scandinavia or Great Britain, with
particular attention to comparisons and contrasts with the United States
Communication Studies 143 History of National Media in the West: Case
Studies (3 credit hours). Study of the emergence of film/television
within a specific international context, such as Scandinavia or Great
Britain, with particular attention to comparisons and contrasts with the
U.S. and Hollywood.
The program will have two primary locations: Holborn/Grays Inn area of
central London, England and the Institute for Drama, Film, and Theater at
the University of Trondheim in Norway. Students will first study British
film and television in London and then study Scandinavian film and
television in Trondheim.
On location in Great Britain and Scandinavia, students will have greater
access to British and Scandinavian scholars, artists, industry
professionals, and facilities, as well as films and television programs,
than they do here in the United States. In addition, studying British and
Scandinavian media while living there will greatly broaden an
understanding of cultural contexts within which foreign films and
television programs are created and viewed. Foreign language skills are
not a prerequisite for participation in this program. Almost all
Scandinavians speak English. Scandinavian films and TV programs are
subtitled in English or simultaneous translation is provided, and lectures
by Scandinavian scholars and artists are in English.
The program director and primary instructor is Dr. Gorham "Hap"
Kindem, Professor of media history and production in the Department of
Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill. He is the author or editor of five books and numerous articles on
film and television. His documentary films have been presented on public
television and the Discovery Channel. He has directed previous film and
television study abroad programs in Great Britain and Scandinavia most
recently in 1995 and has been a visiting professor at the University of
Trondheim. Guest lecturers for past programs have included Phillip
Drummond, Laura Mulvey, Annette Kuhn, Ian Christie, Jostein Gripsrud,
Birgitta Steene, Stig Kulset, Kathrine Skretting, and Bjorn Sorenssen,
among other scholars, artists, and industry professionals.
