Memory in the Movies
PSYC 321 SP
Human memory is frequently portrayed in film but it is sometimes portrayed incorrectly. This seminar is designed to show how memory works, and it will serve as a complement to PSYC/NS&B221: Human Memory. The weekly
parallel those covered in PSYC221, but the focus is shifted. Whereas PSYC221 provides an in-depth overview of human memory by examining research in psychology journals, PSYC321 provides coverage of these topics through
films and documentaries. Each week, a film or documentary will illustrate a different aspect of memory, followed by a discussion of that film based on our understanding of memory research. PSYC321 is not a course about
it is a course about memory that uses film to inform viewers about memory.
To be determined.
EXAMINATIONS AND ASSIGNMENTS
Students will make several oral presentations to the class, framed by material provided by the instructor, write multiple essays during the semester, and complete a final written project relating memory and film.
ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS and/or COMMENTS
Because PSYC321 is conceptually linked to PSYC/NS&B221 on a weekly basis, this POI seminar is limited to students who are currently taking or have recently taken PSYC/NS&B221.
