The University of Winnipeg Collegiate is proud to introduce three new course offerings for the 2018-2019 academic year.

American History 20F

Slavery! Vietnam! Watergate! Alexander Hamilton!

The history of the United States of America is one full of conflict, oppression, and the pursuit of happiness. This course will examine the history of Canada’s biggest ally and trade partner from a Canadian perspective. We will look at how Americans view themselves through their history and the myth of their history, as well as how the rest of the world views them.

The course will include simulation games, book clubs, movies, and more.

Cinema as a Witness to Modern History 40S

This course is an exploration of cinema/film and history. From the perspective of the producer and viewer of the film, we will study and discuss modern history focusing on the key events, ideas, people, and developments that have shaped world history since the beginning of the 20th century.

Goals of the course include:
• The development of critical media literacy by exploring cinema
• The enrichment of knowledge and understanding of world history
• The analysis and discussion of such themes as war, revolution, social values, and the future of humanity through film

Photographic Art 40S

“The camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity”
~ Henry Cartier-Bresson

As a disruptive technology, photography continues to challenge established art forms as well as being an important social, political, and scientific driver of change. In less than 150 years, photography has become the most widely accessible form of human expression. Its impact has been significant as a way of recording history and as a legitimate art medium accessible to all.

Topics include:
• History of photography – photography is still in its infancy compared
to other art forms.
• Art and science of photography
• Analog and digital photography
• Post processing and printing digital photographs
• Macro photography
• Portraiture
