Darkness At Noon:  Film Noir on the Silver Screen
Film Noir is a cinematic genre that views the world as a dark, foreboding place rife with deceit, betrayal, and double dealing. Influenced by the Great Depression and the horrors of World War II, Film Noir was very popular during the late 1930s and the post-war period. Shot mostly in high contrast black and white (good and evil), many of these have entered the pantheon of the best films ever crafted. We will take a look at a number of these unforgettable films, including You Only Live Once, Out of the Past, Double Indemnity, Blood Simple, L.A. Confidential, The Secret in Their Eyes, The Double Hour, Inglorious Bastards, and 21 Grams.

Instructor:  Dr. Moyland Mills

Family Development

We will focus on the development of families as they move through their own life cycles (i.e., from marriage to childbearing and childrearing, and finally to the death of one or both members of the original couple).  We will look at the inner dynamics of marital relationships, the interactions between parent and child across the lifespan, dysfunctions within the family, and alternative family forms. The course will consist mostly of lectures, discussions, and films which relate to but do not completely overlap with material in the textbook.
