Theology & Film

  • Course Dates: Mon 12 June 2023 to Thu 15 June 2023

In this module students will explore how theology engages with film and television. This is a rapidly growing field of research in academic theology. We will look at the history of cinema and television, and the language that has evolved alongisde these art forms, and will investigate how new ways of creating and communicating meaning have emerged through film and television. We will explore how theological themes have been addressed in films, and how Christians and Christian organisations have responded to these portrayals. Students will have the opportunity to learn about key ideas and methods in film criticism and interpretation, and will consider the claim that films and television are now taking the place of religion in many people’s lives in our cultural context.
