TOP REVIEWS FROM FILM, IMAGES & HISTORICAL INTERPRETATION IN THE 20TH CENTURY: THE CAMERA NEVER LIES
The course is great. I got tired in the last weeks (4 and 5) because then it goes too much into war, however the overall material is an amazing source to rethink the images that surround us.
This course provides students with the tools they need to analyse and understand visual history along with its deceiving nature that derived from the very character of film properties.
This is an excellent course and I have really enjoyed it. The topics covered are diverse and the course has provided me with several areas for further independent research.
About half the links in this course are broken, which is very frustrating. I found the course content itself to be very interesting, though!
