Information on HNRS 495 Honors Seminar course:

Honors 495—The Film Auteur: Alfred Hitchcock

This course provides an overview of the life and work of film director Alfred Hitchcock, whose contributions to film began in the early 1920s, continued through his last completed film in 1976, and continue to resonate today with both filmmakers and audiences worldwide. The course will analyze many of his films while also putting them within the context of Hitchcock’s time spent in England and America, the advent of sound in film, cultural shifts and paradigms, and historical influences such as the Cold War or World War II. By the end of the course, students should be able to present critically-informed arguments about Hitchcock’s films through discussion and written assignments in which they demonstrate an understanding of key characteristics in his filmography: major themes and motifs, philosophical and psychological ideas, and stylistic features such as editing, mise-en-scene, and cinematography.

 Possible films to view and discuss include The Lodger, Blackmail, The Thirty-Nine Steps, Foreign Correspondent, Rebecca, Shadow of a Doubt, Notorious, Strangers on a Train, Rear Window, Vertigo, Psycho, North by Northwest, and The Birds. In addition, the class might view documentaries focusing on Alfred Hitchcock such as Hitchcock/Truffaut or 78/52.
