ASIU 111 / FILM GENRE
Term: Spring 2015Units 3Days: MON*Times: 11:30:00-14:15:00

Some of the many questions, concerns and misconceptions raised by the study of film through genre: What is genre? Are film genres a marketing tool, a by-product of journalism or a fundamental way of understanding and discussing motion pictures? Is there such a thing as a `genre film? or is no movie immune to genre criticism? What are the generic tropes associated with certain genres? Can a film belong to more than one genre? Does a film?s genre stay the same over time? Does a genre-based view expand or delimit our conception of a motion picture?
