A collaboration between Prairie View A & M University and Texas Southern University to prepare faculty at both institutions to develop and teach courses on the history and the critical interpretation of film.

Recognizing the social, aesthetic, and economic importance of cinema for the history of the twentieth century, Prairie View A&M and Texas Southern Universities seek an NEH grant to help develop and enhance courses that address history, literature, and culture through film. We will collaborate to create new film courses and establish resources for these courses. An NEH grant is sought because training and funding (as Andrew Garrison, director of the NCTE Commission on Media, has noted) rank as the two biggest hurdles to incorporating film and television successfully into the classroom. Creating a collaborative workshop, in consultation with experts in the field, would be one way to help improve the quality and teaching in the humanities, while a yearlong faculty forum on film is another.
