HFMK03306U FM, Module 1: Organizational and institutional analysis - Seminar C: Authorship, Regulation, and Cultural Heritage

Volume 2018/2019

Master in Film and Media Studies, 2016-curriculum


This course provides a comprehensive overview of media institutions and organisations, their emergence, structuration and contemporary transformation. Participants will be introduced into classical and modern sociological theory of institutions and organisations as well as theories of management. Applied to the media, the course will offer a comprehensive overview on the emergence of global media industries which comprise several organisational types and institutions that range from public to private, from hierarchical to networked. The focus will be on comparison in two dimensions: first differences and similarities of types of media institutions and organisations (film, news, broadcasting and intenet) and comparison across different social and cultural contexts (within Europe and beyond).

Lectures held in English (Hans-Jörg Trenz)

Seminar C: Authorship, Regulation, and Cultural Heritage held in english (Casper Tybjerg) 

This seminar will take an institutional approach to the concept of authorship. It will examine the way authorship functions within the larger institution of cinema, particularly art cinema, and how it affects the way films are marketed, interpreted, and regulated, with particular attention to censorship and copyright. We will also examine the institutions safeguarding the cultural heritage, particularly in the field of cinema, and how they are affected by the idea of authorship and by copyright regulations.
