Description
This course introduces students to the fascinating world of Bollywood- the Hindi film industry. We will discuss the many facets of Hindi movies such as: dance, music, themes, and social customs. Students will also view Bollywood films (complete with sub-titles). We will use both classic and current Bollywood cinema for this course and trace the development of stylistic and aesthetic changes throughout. Further, we will explore the notion of popular cinema. Specifically, we will inquire into the importance of the popular in a non-Western context and why we must take the popular seriously as a mode of knowledge production, which shapes both cultural practice and aspects of cultural production beyond the cinematic. Through this course, students will learn how Bollywood has emerged as a major player in global media.
