Documentary Film and the City

Purcell Carson and Alison Ellen Isenberg

Back to "Fall 2016" courses

This urban studies seminar in history and documentary filmmaking 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 1960s, race, region, economy, memory, and media representation. Students collect archival sources and help produce video interviews, culminating in their own research papers and short documentary films. Collaborative assignments will contribute to works of scholarship and documentary produced by the professors. Includes public screening of student work. See www.thetrentonproject.com.
