An examination and exercise of the reuse and repurposing of archival audiovisual content in new scholarly or creative work. Part of the course will be a survey and discussion of how different genres incorporate suchvisuals (experimental film vs. documentaries vs. narrative features vs. transmedia/storytelling vs. journalistic outlets), and the other part will be a lab wherein students will create a final media project - short documentary film, video essay, transmedia project, or news story - utilizing archival footage from select sources.
