Earth Day Special - Teaching Film in Class: Movies on the U.S. Political System and Environmental Issues

Fiona Pleasance, Lehrbeauftragte HS Ansbach und TH Nürnberg

In this workshop we will be looking at a selection of films which deal with environmental issues on the one hand, and the US political system on the other. Participants will receive an overview of recommended movies and a list of important scenes in each, as well as suggestions for different approaches and topics for discussion. The focus will be on each film's plot and content, but a brief overview of other possible approaches to the use of feature films in class, for example film analysis or film-historical context, will also be provided.

Fiona Pleasance (B.A. History, University of Cambridge; M.A. Film Studies, University of East Anglia) hat fast 20 Jahre in der Film/Video-Produktion in München und Nürnberg gearbeitet. Sie ist aktuell Lehrbeauftragte für Filmgeschichte und Filmanalyse, seit 2009 im Studiengang Multimedia und Kommunikation an der Hochschule Ansbach und seit 2010 an der Fakultät Design der TH Nürnberg Georg-Simon-Ohm.
