Research by scholars such as Dana Polan, Eric Smoodin, Lea Jacobs, and Peter Decherney has contributed to a greater historicization of film studies as well as film education. This panel invites work that continues this line of inquiry by exploring historical instances of and developments in film, television, and media pedagogy (broadly defined) from a variety of perspectives, including institutional, cultural, and transnational.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
> Film-related pedagogical materials produced by governments, corporations, and other institutions;
> Marxist, Feminist, and Queer film/media pedagogies;
> Historicization and critique of the “literacy” metaphor;
> Founding and development of particular film schools;
> Ephemeral media and their pedagogical contexts in institutions such as schools, prisons, churches, military, etc.;
> Past debates over the conflation or separation of film & television in media pedagogy;
> Past struggles over the linkage/breach between notions of reception and production, or questions of passivity and activity;
> Underexplored chapters of SCMS’s historical development;
> Historiographic challenges to researching and narrativizing film education’s past incarnations;
> Past attempts by transnational institutions and organizations, such as the United Nations, to mobilize and support media education efforts.
