This will not just be a movie class. The purpose of this class is to deconstruct historical perspective and look at various historical events through a variety of different types of media and films. Historic events are often shared by multiple people who see it in different ways. These different ways are often portrayed in movies as the writers or directors point of view. In this class we will be mindful of this as we objectively analyze different films and compare the film to evidence we have of the actual historic event. This may be a film course, but we will also be doing a variety of different reading, writing, and research on American historical events.
