ARH 341R ARH 341R. Apertures: Film and Photography Through Greater Mexico. 3 Hours.
Exploration of the historical and aesthetic linkages and affinities between filmmakers and photographers working in greater Mexico, including prominent visitors and Americans of Mexican descent. Considers how Mexican culture is represented but also how borders between Mexico and the wider world--as well as among media--were blurred or brought into sharper focus by these exchanges. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Art History 341R and 361 (Topic: Apertures: Film & Photo Mexico) may not both be counted.
