Teaching Film History with the Media History Digital Library

An Online Workshop with Liz Clarke, Paul Monticone, Jocelyn Szczepaniak-Gillece, and Eric Hoyt

Wednesday, January 19, 2022
3:00 PM Central / 4:00 PM Eastern

The Media History Digital Library (MHDL)<>, has now digitized more than 3 million pages of film and broadcasting books and periodicals for broad public access. How can the MHDL’s large collection and its discovery platforms, Lantern<> and Arclight<>, be leveraged toward the teaching of film history?

This workshop brings together three instructors of film history who have developed creative and engaging assignments for students using the MHDL. The assignments, which are available on the MHDL’s Teaching webpage<>, range from carefully reading several consecutive issues of the same journal to look for debates within the industry, to examining the same film from multiple methodological frameworks, to writing a silent film using the advice from screenplay manuals of the late-1910s. Liz Clarke (Brock University), Paul Monticone (Rowan University), and Jocelyn Szczepaniak-Gillece (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee) will each discuss the assignments they developed using the MHDL and reflect on their students’ experiences and learning outcomes. The workshop will be moderated by Eric Hoyt (University of Wisconsin-Madison and Director of the MHDL).

The workshop is free, but registration is required. RSVP and obtain the Zoom link by emailing [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. Please come join us to hear about these creative assignments, learn about the latest features and additions to the MHDL, and share what has worked well for you as a teacher or researcher of film history!

Thank you to the ACLS for supporting this workshop as part of the Globalizing and Enhancing the Media History Digital Library initiative.
