Notes
First-Year Seminars are open to all students who are in their first year at UMBC. Course Description: IMAGES OF MADNESS- In contemporary society, virtually everyone goes to movie theatres or views feature films at home on videos, DVD's or television. For many people, films, regardless of their accuracy, serve as a major source of information on social issues, including mental illness. This course reviews Academy Award winning films depicting mental illness to consider the influence of motion pictures on the public perception of social issues, policies, and services. Beginning with The Snake Pit (1948) through As Good as it Gets (1997), students analyze films using a historical framework and in conjunction with assigned readings that address cultural stereotypes, societal attitudes, and the public's response toward people with mental illness.
