Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS COURSE WILL SERVE TO OFFER STUDENTS AN INTRODUCTION TO SEVERAL IMPORTANT BUT UNDER-REPRESENTED SCHOLARLY APPROACHES IN THE HUMANITIES, INCLUDING FILM STUDIES AND CULTURAL STUDIES. THE COURSE SHOULD ATTRACT STUDENTS INTERESTED IN THE HUMANITIES, ESPECIALLY STUDENTS INTIMIDATED BY THE APPARENT DIFFICULTY OF COURSES INVOLVING THE STUDY OF ‘HIGH CULTURAL’ LITERATURE. THE COURSE MEETS THE OBJECTIVES OF MANY HUMANITIES DISCIPLINES, INCLUDING WRITING RIGOROUS, WELL-SUPPORTED ANALYTICAL ARGUMENTS. IT WILL PROVIDE AN INTERESTING PERSPECTIVE UPON HOW TWENTIETH CENTURY SOCIAL LIFE AND GEOPOLITICS WERE MEDIATED THROUGH DETECTIVE AND ESPIONAGE NARRATIVES.
