UR RE ST 320. Cities in Cinema. 3 Credits.

This course explores the relationship between cinema and research themes in Urban Studies with an overreaching emphasis on global/world cities. These cities are the pinnacle of the global urban network and are the "hubs of economic control, production and trade, of information circulation and cultural transmission, and of political power" (The Dictionary of Human Geography). In this course, related interdisciplinary readings serve as the framework for viewing, analyzing, critiquing, and discussion urban lifestyles, political economic structures and relationships, and the built environment as portrayed in popular films.
