I will be teaching a course called American Film after having taught
Intro to Cinema for several years.  Can anyone recommend a strategy for
such a course?  I have always focused on the technical and directorial
contributions of films but I would like to try a different focus, the
relationship between US cultural history and films perhaps?
Any suggestions would be most welcome including a recommendation for a
text and films.
