Citing the viewer : ethnography, film theory and experiences of martial arts action cinema

Citing the viewer : ethnography, film theory and experiences of martial arts action cinema

Although I outline below the theoretical categories of experience I extrapolated from case study responses, I chose not to use such a posteriori categories to structure my presentation of informant responses in this project. Instead, I present informant responses under question/response area headings, where the quotations and other information in each section corresponds to what informants said or wrote in response to certain questions and/or responses that have a bearing on the area in question. So, initially I identify the perspectives from which informants experience martial arts action cinema, and then move to illustrate why it is that informants watch or don’t watch, enjoy or dislike, martial arts action films, using their words. I continue in this vein - using often long but sometimes a number of brief, juxtaposed quotations - illustrating informant responses and experiences of martial arts action cinema, commenting on similarities and differences between, as well as the possible significances of, their words as expressions of experience as well as attitude. I do this primarily to make clear the context in which informant comments are elicited in response to my own questions, so as not to give any impression that informant quotations are from film experiencers in a research vacuum, as it were. I also found this form of presentation preferable to others I considered because setting out the information under aspect of experience category headings would involve a great deal of repetition, since individual informant comments can be discussed under more than one category heading in almost every case.

Theatre Arts In the School of Theatre, Television, and Film In the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts

The School of Theatre, Television, and Film offers graduate study leading to the Master of Arts degree and the Master of Fine Arts degree in theatre arts. Graduates in these programs learn in the artist- scholar model and are prepared for careers as practitioners and educators.

Both programs of study limit the number of students accepted in order to offer individual attention and extensive opportunity to participate in theatre production. The Dramatic Arts building contains the proscenium-style Don Powell Theatre seating 500, with state-of-the-art computer lighting and sound control, and the flexible Experimental Theatre seating 200, rehearsal and recording areas, a design studio and CADD laboratory, paint shop, wagon house, scene shop, and fully equipped costume laboratory.

Preservice Teachers' Perceptions of Film in English Language Arts Instruction

Preservice Teachers' Perceptions of Film in English Language Arts Instruction

While film has long been included in English language arts instruction, it has typically been relegated to the position of supplementary resource and considered a nontraditional text. The interest in expanding English language arts instruction to address twenty-first century literacies demands difficult choices about what textual forms to include and necessitates a reassessment of film‟s importance. Because they are at an important juncture in their experience with the English language arts, preservice teachers offer an interesting perspective on this question. They are completing years of study in which they have been the recipients of English language arts instruction. Now students of a teacher preparation program, they receive direct instruction from faculty who are closely attuned to the theoretical movements within the discipline. Simultaneously, they are engaging in fieldwork that allows them to observe K-12 teachers‟ instructional practices. As they form their own philosophies of English language arts instruction, they must reconcile these multiple perspectives into a personal understanding that will shape the ways in which they teach – in effect, their refined understandings represent the future of English language arts instruction.

Media Arts Education in the Post-Racial Classroom: An Interview with Janaya Greene about the Short Film, Veracity

Media Arts Education in the Post-Racial Classroom: An Interview with Janaya Greene about the Short Film, Veracity

Greene’s reflections on her film, Veracity, is a resource for contem- porary media arts educators wishing to use media to craft a critical approach to a post-racial classroom conversation. Research in art education has demonstrated the value of media literacy and the arts in helping students critically engage with (as opposed to passively consuming) the films, television shows, news and other forms of mass media that permeate their lives (Wyrick, 1994; Duncum, 2001). The media arts classroom is an important place to explore students’ ideas about the conflicts and contradictions within representation in post-racial America, not least of all because mainstream media stories about race and racism subject young people to simplified, often ste- reotypical narratives about themselves. For example, in the context of recent media attention to police shootings of young African American males, the stereotypical discourse of masculinity and race positions the victims of these shootings as inherently threatening and danger- ous. 4
