This course will introduce Honours students to the critical study of music and sound across the history of feature film, by critically considering a series of case studies extending from the 'silent' era to the latest blockbusters in light of selections from the relevant theoretical literature. A combination of lectures, assigned viewings/ readings, and discussion classes will prepare students to submit one scholarly essay and give one presentation.
