Established in 2010, the graduate minor in moving image studies (MIMS) trains students from a variety of disciplines in the critical analysis of the moving image in its disparate yet interrelated forms. The curriculum, which brings together discourses in film theory, media studies, philosophy of the image, history of technology, and beyond, seeks to promote the study of the moving image from its origins in the late 19th century to our present day.
Moving image studies is an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental initiative supported by 13 departments within the College of Liberal Arts:
- American Studies
- Art History
- Asian & Middle Eastern Studies
- Communication Studies
- Cultural Studies & Comparative Literature
- French & Italian
- Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies
- German, Nordic, Slavic & Dutch
- Spanish & Portuguese Studies
- Theatre Arts & Dance
The core courses in the graduate minor are taught by faculty from across these various departments.
