‘Watching’ Europe: An Introduction to European History Through Cinema
The module aims to sensitize participants to the multilayered historical contexts which have shaped (and continue to shape) European societies through the ages and the relevance of understanding the same in today’s increasingly interconnected world. A set of carefully chosen films not only serves as the medium through which the past is explored and critically discussed, but in doing so, the learner is also exposed to the rich artistic diversity of European cinema. The course provides an ideal platform to creatively engage with European and world history in a format that is accessible to all, informative, and entertaining. The themes treated in the chosen films invite participants to discover and enter into a dialogue with embedded socio-political and cultural contexts that characterize both the historical process and the film-making itself.
