Through the use of visual media (documentaries, films, television, etc.) and print media (books, newspapers, magazines) students will examine and analyze the historical worth of these items in comparison to the work of historians, biographers, and film scholars. The class will also consider general methodological issues raised by the use of film in the study of history and biography. Throughout the course students learn how to correctly construct research papers, annotated bibliographies, and other forms of presenting the information they have investigated.
