EMDA 420 - Science Fiction Film


4 credits
Explores Fredric Jameson’s assertion that Science Fiction is “the social realism of our time” because it dramatizes the dilemmas and opportunities of living in a highly mediated world, one saturated with imagery, much of it commercial, where the boundaries between the real and the virtual are uncertain. In addition to studying the history of science fiction film and discussing theories of virtual reality, the course will examine the specific technologies used to produce special effects in Science Fiction (and increasingly most) film. Prerequisite(s): EMDA 320  or EMDA 321  . (Cross-listed with COMM 420  .)
Grade mode designated on a CRN basis each term. Students should consult current term schedule.
