HST 302 War and European Cinema (3)

Explores how films have constructed ideas about war in 20th Century Europe. Examines films of the First World War, the Second World War, the Balkan War of the 1990s, and the Chechen War. Through readings, discussions, and viewings, students will gain a better understanding of how war is represented on the “big screen” and how wars of the 20th Century have been remembered and recast in film.

Cross-listed with FST.
