Film, Politics & Education: Cinematic Pedagogy Across the Disciplines

Hardback
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.
