W19-87 THE DEBATE ABOUT VIOLENCE IN ENTERTAINMENT
Friday: 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
1 Session: Feb. 22
TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Andre Krauss

Social scientists claim that violence in entertainment can have negative effects on the audience, especially the young. Their opponents claim that depictions of conflict and violence are indispensable ingredients of a great narrative. During this course, we will discuss examples of violent content in film, theater, and the visual arts. We will review the main theories generated by the social scientists as well as examine the more contentious cultural and political ramifications of the debate.
Silver Member: $55; Gold Member: $49.
