Still time to add a block II Mini Course

Please review the following one credit courses offered with the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF). Seats are still available in the following:

FLEFF: Health Landscapes - 42615 - HLTH 39902 – 01Landscape” was first used in reference to 17th century Dutch painting, but now includes lived observations and experiences. Landscapes shape culture, character, community and health.  Health landscapes: hospitals, waste treatment plants, waiting rooms, climate chaos, neighborhoods, poverty, bodies.  We will pursue films, readings, and discussions about health landscapes in this course. Block II MW 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm Stewart Auyash

Don't Tread on Me!  Landscapes as Agents 44191 - GCOM 11600 - 01  We tend to think of landscapes as backdrops--passive stages on which the real story is enacted by screenwriters, directors, and actors.  What if the scene itself was a prime mover in the story?  What if landscapes themselves were agents that interact with other subjects in meaningful ways to make the story happen?  We will come to realize that landscapes are far from passive scenes. Grading is based on participation.  In this course students will write reflections on required readings and films and attend FLEFF screenings. 1 credit S/D/F Block II 2:35-3:50pm TR.  Jake Brenner

Political Landscapes: 2016 Campaign Platforms 44192 - GCOM 11800 - 01  In this seminar students will explore the economic and environmental platforms of the candidates who are competing in the democratic and republican primaries for president. Students will also attend FLEFF films to analyze and compare themes explored in these films with positions taken by the candidates. In this course students will write reflections on required readings and films and attend FLEFF screenings. 1 credit S/D/F Block II Tuesdays 4 - 5:30 pm. Don Beachler

Narrative Landscapes and Rhetorical Landmines 44190 - GCOM 11500 - 01  Why do audiences make some films popular and not others? What does that tell us about the kinds of narratives that resonate with mass audiences? How do some films convey messages that function as cultural landmines and others have underlying messages that shift digital, cultural, economic, ideological, social, environmental, and political landscapes? In this class we discuss how filmmakers function as dominant In this course students will write reflections on required readings and films and attend FLEFF screenings. 1 credit S/D/F Block II- Wednesdays 4:00pm-6:30pm.
