my department at michigan state university has a film studies major 
in the english dept itself.
it is not simply a question of film courses, but an actual major 
within the dept. i wonder how many others have this arrangement; and 
i suppose that if professor gershovich wanted to contact the 
co-chairs of the film program, he could do so. i imagine it is a 
rarity to have this arrangement instead of a separate dept or a dept 
in a com arts program
