9780131938465: History and Film: Moving Pictures and the Study of the Past

        Moving pictures have had a great influence on human culture, and this book focuses on using moving images as historical evidence.  Studying history means examining evidence from the past to understand, interpret and present what has happened in different times and places.  We talk and write about what we have learned, hoping to establish credibility both for what we have determined to be the facts and for whatever meaning or significance we may attach to our reconstruction of the past.  Studying history is a scientific process, involving a fairly set methodology.  We tend to favor written sources, and we have tended to favor writing as a means of presenting our views of the past.  But historians also use all kinds of other documents and artifacts in their work of interpreting the past, including moving pictures.

From the Back Cover:

 History and Film  will help students to:

  1. Analyze film critically, particularly for historical content, using it to gather information about the past, paying attention to the kinds of material and information it uses.
  2. Distinguish between a film’s historical and fictional elements, and identify ways in which even the fictional elements may be a source of historical insight.
  3. Examine film as a historical or cultural artifact, answering questions about the production, content, reception and historical context of the film.
  4. Use print and electronic sources effectively in the study of history in film.
  5. Use film effectively as a primary and/or secondary source in the study of historical topics.
  6. Communicate insights effectively in writing that meets the standards of the discipline of history
