Studies in Global Cinema: Nollywood - 20857 - FST 589 - 001

All students are expected to attend and participate in person at the assigned day/time. (F2F)

Recently, rejuvenated calls for the decolonization of the Film Studies discipline are stirring interests in the reconceptualization of non-Western cinemas. Being one of the most prominent and successful national cinemas in the world, Nigeria's Nollywood positions itself as a relevant case-study for the further decolonization of how we understand diverse, non-Western national cinemas. In this course, we will examine Nollywood as a cinema that is responding to the particularities of its local, African audience, even if those particularities sometimes appear to reject Western understandings of what a cinema is.
