Old media meets new media in a special seminar/workshop designed for Berkeley faculty and graduate students. Hong Kong cinema’s global reach offers an opportunity to explore how flows of capital, people, technologies, ideas and creativity circulate and shape the cultural industry of filmmaking, resulting in transnational co-productions and cross-cultural co-operations. Online instruction affords faculty creative new outlets for examining the dynamics of global cinema with students around the world. In this seminar/workshop, Gina Marchetti will share insights and strategies for teaching Hong Kong cinema in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

Seating is limited. Registration is required for this event.
