This course examines the emergence, development, and global expansion of the Hollywood film industry, arguably the most famous national cinema in the world. Focusing on contemporary Hollywood, the course takes both a textual and contextual approach and positions the industry in light of changing cultural, economic, industrial, political, and technological contexts.
