Teaching Science Fiction Film Genre: Theory, Form, and Theme.
Roth, Lane
Intended to provide a paradigm for teachers planning a course in science fiction film, the instructional approach outlined in this paper examines films in relation to each other and to culture. The paper provides a course outline, a discussion of lecture topics, a suggested reading list, and a film list. The instructional approach suggested by the paper is divided into three parts--the first third of the course approaches the film genre from a theoretical perspective sufficiently broad to introduce any film genre course, so that as a module it could be "plugged into" alternative studies of the Western, horror film, et cetera. The second and conclduing segments of the course focus on the science fiction film by examining, respectively, its formal properties and representative themes. The paper includes 27 notes. (NKA)
