This topic allows students to conduct a directed reading and viewing project in a particular area of screen production, screen history, media technologies, or screen theory.

The topic will ideally suit a student who has already developed a clearly defined research interest.

  • demonstrate a detailed knowledge of the media productions in their chosen area of study

  • analyse the various discursive practices involved in the production of a body of screen work, as well as the critical and theoretical debates associated with them

  • independently pursue to completion a planned course of study
