Frankfurt, John Silver_nugget
Silent Cinema

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

This is not an easy topic to teach, but Professor Frankfurt managed to make the class casual and engaging. I really appreciated how he was so receptive and responsive to student comments; it was great to be able to voice personal opinions for once.

Workload:

Discussion postings. Two online papers (3000 words) that lets you site film clips watched in class. One paper (2500 words) on Nanook of the North looking through the Robert Flaherty archival papers in Columbia's library.
