Course Description

PS 315 Politics and Film 4 cr.

  • Offered: Contact department

This course uses films and selected documentaries to analyze a series of political topics, all linked by themes of power and violence in political systems. Some of these issues are basic and permanent in politics, such as the troubled relationship between private and public ethics; others, such as totalitarianism, force us to rethink the nature of modernity itself.
