FILM 41.14 THE WESTERN 2A PROFESSOR MARK WILLIAMS

Thursday, June 21, 2018
10:00am-12:00pm
Loew Auditorium, Black Family Visual Arts Center
Intended Audience(s): Students-Undergraduate
Categories:

Explores the development of the Western genre from its beginnings in pre-cinematic culture and silent cinema through its maturation in the Classical Hollywood era (1930s to 1950s), its path toward revisionism in the 1960s and 1970s, and its fluttering obsolescence ever since. Historical analysis of this most prolific, and most "American," of Hollywood genres provides a singularly nation-centered perspective on changing U.S. culture, ideologies, and sensibilities.
