Documentary Film and the City

Purcell Carson and Alison Ellen Isenberg

Back to "Fall 2017" courses

This hands-on urban studies seminar in documentary film making and history focuses on Trenton’s unrest of April 1968, when a black college student, Harlan Joseph, was shot and killed by a white police officer. The course works outward from these events to examine the 1960’s, race, region, economy, memory, and media representation. Students produce their own short films and related research papers using their own field work and shared archives sources. Collaborative assignments will contribute to works of scholarship and a documentary produced by the professors. Includes public screening of student work. See www.thetrentonproject.com.
