Film, Politics & Education Cinematic Pedagogy Across the Disciplines

by Kelvin Shawn Sealey

Film, Politics & Education Cinematic Pedagogy Across the Disciplines Synopsis

Introducing the concept of cinematic education - defined as pedagogy infused by the moving image - this volume explores the historical, theoretical, and practical basis for using film in kindergarten through post-secondary classrooms. Its scholarly inquiry into the meaning film can bring to teaching and learning extends a vast literature on film theory. At the same time it broadens the scope of cultural studies in education to include a more thorough consideration of the day-to-day political dimensions of the cinematic in K-12 public and private classrooms.

Film, Politics & Education Cinematic Pedagogy Across the Disciplines Press Reviews

This book provides an essential overview of the pedagogical rewards and challenges of using film in graduate and undergraduate classrooms. My own teaching at a school of public health will benefit greatly from the ideas in this important collection of essays. (Michael Yudell, Drexel University) This is a wonderful book that should be read by everyone interested in good, joyful teaching. What is great about it is the way in which its contributors show just how effectively film can be used in the classroom by catalyzing discussion, bringing critical ideas to the fore, and enriching mass education. (Karen Anderson, York University) Although often argued to be soft pedagogy, these authors present a convincing case for the use of film as a tool to assist learners in symbolic as well as literary analysis. This book is timely and sure to give voice to the necessity for expanding the employment of new pedagogical strategies.
