MLNG 130 - Hollywood and History: Gateway to the West
Using a central content theme based on cultural history, folklore, and sites within the Missouri and Illinois region, the course will explore the relationship between Hollywood's version of historical events and documented history. The cultural history component consists of discussion and lectures on local events and historical and literary figures in the context of U.S. history and cultural narratives. The course also has discussion sessions based on movies and field trips to local sites of interest. The language skill component of the class consists of reading, writing and editing workshops that are linked to the content.
This course is taught by Diana Pascoe, Ph.D., Larry Schmidt, Ph.D. and Jillian Baldwin Kim, M.A.
