Area chairs

Film Studies examines all aspects of the motion picture: history, themes, genres, trends, fiction film, documentary film, film artists, the star system, the studio system, technology and technological advances, American film, international film, film in the context of the period during which it is/was produced, and presentation formats from nitrate to digital video. Unless linked to a specific genre or some other aspect of film study, examinations of animated films should be directed toward the Comics, Cartoons, and Video Gaming area.
