Berthold Hoeckner,

Topic and Goal
This graduate research seminar explores topics arising from the conjunction of film, music,
and memory. We will take it as a given that music is centrally involved in the storage and retri of the cinematic image, while adding to and modulating its affect. As a result, music not only shapes narration by structuring diegetic time; it also influences how viewers remember
specific
filmic events and their overall cinematic experience. We will explore these issues through narrative devices germane to film (such as flashback, dissolve, and montage), conceptual
models for mediated memory (such as palimpsests, double projections, cinematic covers), and case studies that are embedded in broader critical and historical problems (such as gendered recollection, cinematic renditions of trauma and nostalgia as experiences of the modern, the proliferation of memory through mass media). Seminar sessions will typically focus on one or two movies in depth. Participants will take turns in functioning as "experts" for select films by creating cue sheets and preparing readings for class discussions. Students taking the class for credit will present a 20-minute research paper at a mini-conference scheduled for Wednesday of Week 11. A precis of the paper is due in week 6 and a draft of the paper one week before presentation.


Materials and Screenings
Films and soundtracks, if available, are on Reserve. Weekly readings will be on E-Reserve
and/or on the Chalk Site (under Course Documents). The Music Seminar Room in JRL has been reserved for two nights (Monday and Thursday) to allow participants to watch the films as a group. DVDs of the films will be checked out for the week and left in Locker 4513: from the main stairway entry to the fourth floor go east on the North side of the row of shelves in the middle. Past the seminar rooms, the locker is a top locker in the group perpendicular to the East
wall with the shelves of DVD and VHS cases. To open use the combination 27-25-13 as
follows: turn left to the first number, then--passing the first number–-right to the second number, and then left to the last number until you hear a clicking sound; then turn right to open. DVDs in the locker are checked out under my name for the week and should not be kept for longer than 3 hours. Please sing them out on the sheet. DVDs must be back in the locker prior to
screenings.
