Examination of the superhero within and across media, industries, and eras addressing topics such as genre, style, seriality, remediation, franchising, and fandom.
As part of a curriculum revision, Film and Media Studies proposes to recreate several courses it has regularly offered as 500-level advanced special topics courses at the more appropriate 300 level. This revision also updates the elective distribution better to accommodate faculty specializations, student needs, and the state of the discipline. This regularly offered class is proposed as a stand-alone course in the appropriate distribution. In it, students will develop skills necessary to grapple with medium specificity and convergence in an espeically prolific variety of media production.
It is suggested to add a minimum grade for the two prerequisites listed. For example, a minimum grade of "D" would indicate that the student passed the course. Department may want to list a higher minimum grade, if appropriate. This will allow us to enforce the prerequisite in Banner at the time of registration.
If you prefer not to list a minimum grade, please indicate that in your response.
