Analysing the moving image's relationship to industrialism, leisure time, consumerism, post-Fordism and many other issues, the course will link a diverse group of visual works to important historical and theoretical trends in the work and free time of the twentieth and twenty first centuries. Each week will be organised around an overarching theme (work, strike, automation, the idle rich etc.), pairing important texts in the history and theory of labour with relevant film works and analysis. Students will be marked according to two essays, participation and attendance, presentations and weekly online contributions.
