THE WESTERN     2A

PROFESSOR MARK WILLIAMS

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.
