The School of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Greenwich, needs
an experienced visiting lecturer who can teach the second term of a
second-year course, Dream Factory -- taught Thursdays 3-5 pm, starting week
beginning 4 January 2010.  Email CV and teaching reference by no later than
5:00 pm 10 December. Probable interview date 17 December.

Course specifications:

Dream Factory: The Motion Picture Industry and American Society in the
Twentieth Century.
Hollywood studios produced celluloid dreams using advanced industrial and
marketing methods. Between 1920 and 1950, the film industry dominated
American and, to a large extent, world popular entertainment. This course
will set the history of this important industry within the broader framework
of twentieth-century American history. The course traces the development of
the American film industry from its origins in the late nineteenth century
to approximately 1980. The course enables students to understand the
evolving nature of the American motion picture industry and the processes of
cultural production through an examination of the industry's business and
commercial practices, its relationship to the state, and its location within
the broader pattern of twentieth-century American politics and society.

The course is suitable for students with an interest in film studies,
literature, media, history and politics.
