Аннотация

The main aim of this course is to provide scholarly introduction of how media change the professional and public perception of history and what new methods and sources of historical research arise with the spread of audiovisual and digital media. The course is composed of three main parts. 1. History in film and TV shows: the problems of storytelling and historical narrative’s construction (including adaptations and transmedia storytelling). 2. Documentaries based on historical content (including multi-platform projects): realism, propaganda, edutainment. 3. Digital History: Big Historical data and crowdsourcing in histori-cal projects. Theoretical outcomes of the course will be in introducing to the stu-dents (a) methods of storytelling and past representations’ analyses, (b) the study of historical film in the framework of public history and (c) ways of implementation of digital humanities’ methods in historical research. Practical outcome of the course will be in development of students’ media project’ concept based on historical content. The course is focused on the most recent trends in producing of his-torical media projects, which presuppose the collaboration of academic his-torians, public historians, media professionals and IT specialists and in-clude amateur content made by witnesses.
