The course aim is to rejuvenate the existing study of religious symbols (as a part of culture) at FAMU by replacing the broader original study with the title „Dramaturgical Analyses of Biblical Stories and Figures“ with a new study entitled "Considerations of Multi-culturalness and Religious Pluralism in modern film.

The aim is to present in an introductory study in modern Western culture no only as a merely Christian society but primarily as a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and multi-religious culture and as it is reflected in modern film. Effort will be made to demarcate the perspectives of the course including potential inter-disciplinary collaboration with other artistic and humanities studies.

Forma studia

The extent of the course is 4 instruction classes one every 14 days. Four instruction classes are set out as one hour lecture and three class instruction hours. Students have, during the course of the academic year, enough time for individual preparations for the course (independent study of film materials). Enough space is assured for screenings of selected film examples for topics and discussions about them.

Předpoklady a další požadavky

A necessary requirement for successful completion of the course is a basic good orientation of the students in modern film and independent work in the classes, including ability to consider one's own motivations and behaviour. An elementary knowledge of religions is welcomed, but one's own confession (religious affiliation and membership in a church) is not required.
