Course programme

Though cinema constitutes a broad space in the curriculum, there are also courses on Media Studies and Communication Studies. Contemporary theoretical and historical research in media forms such as newspaper, radio and television and internet will be discussed with due importance in these courses. At the same time, the students will be encouraged through projects and fieldwork to develop their own critical perspectives on recent developments in media practices. Since Film Studies and Media Studies share a lot of common grounds with disciplines like Cultural Studies, and draw upon contemporary social sciences, we have courses that deal with issues like nationalism, postcoloniality, modernity, postmodernity and globalization. The Indian context is studied with special emphasis in most of the papers, often in connection with other non-western cases such as Japan, the Latin American countries, China and Iran.
