COMING IN MAY!
This 5.5 week mini-course will use a selection of films about journalism in the United States to illustrate Hollywood’s portrayal of the press. We will combine short activities in film analysis with a selection of readings about the historical events portrayed in the films to better understand the role of the press in US society.
