Bruce Jackson is a well-known and respected professor at this University. He has taught a number of English classes, including Crime and Punishment and Humanities. This Fall, Jackson will continue to teach his innovative 3 credit course: Contemporary Cinema.
Contemporary Cinema is a unique way of getting Buffalo's downtown communtity involved with the Universtity at Buffalo. Jackson takes a film class and moves it to the Market Arcade Film Center (formaly the Angelica Theater) where it meets once a week. The films shown are open to the general public. The movies are a part of the class, so there is no charge for students. You will receive a pass at the beginning of the semester that you must hang on to. The films shown represent a wide range of genres and time periods--some films date all the way back to the 30's. The films are followed by a discussion session which includes both UB students and the general public.
Jackson is not a tough grader, but like every professer he expects you to show up and voice your comments. A short paper is due for each movie where you will be expected to explain your opinions of the film and the class dicussion.
This is the only class that Jackson is teaching next semester and it will be on Tuesdays from 7-9:40.
