Acerca del Curso

This course is a short taster on the topic of the use of Images, Film, and their use in historical interpretation in the 20th century. It is primarily provided for those who have a general interest in history that draws on photojournalism as primary evidence, and films based on historical events. Once you have completed this course we hope you will be equipped to: Appreciate the significance of photographs as historical evidence in the twentieth century. Understand the limitations of the medium, and how we can attribute meaning to these individual records of 'one moment in time' while taking into account the circumstances in which any particular image was taken. Understand how individuals and institutions have looked to manipulate images to their own ends – through alteration and/or censorship – and what that meant to contemporary interpretation, as well as subsequent historical interpretation. Put individual images into a wider context, and in particular with reference to history written, or portrayed, beyond academia: public history. Do be aware that part of the contents of this course regard images and depiction of war. Real wars and real images....

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.

It is a very informative course for history enthusiasts. It encourages critical thinking and interpretation of history in a unique way. I enjoyed and learned a lot in the 6 weeks.

Whay I really liked about this course is that I learned a lot of history and got a better understanding of the context of historical events, and I improved my analalytical skills in ways I didn't know before. It really helped me to be more critical about what media presents to the public, as well as how and why they do it.

I enjoyed too much this course. The professor is nice and the material studied was really interesting. My advise is to incorporate images and items from more countries because I felt that the course payed a lot of attention to history facts of the United States. Thanks a lot professor Emett

Es un curso más enfocado en eventos históricos más que en la imagen. Por otra parte, los quiz son muy precisos, datos concretos por sobre una reflexión personal. Sin embargo, es un gran curso, dictado por un excelente profesor.

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.

An informative course that made me think about the use of images in everything from newspapers to propaganda shorts to history books. Would highly recommend.
