Research essay on WWI trauma and Gance's _J'accuse_

Started Apr. 16, 2021

Abstract or project description

Nina will be writing an 8-10 page research essay on World War I trauma, concentrating on Abel Gance's film _J'accuse_ (1919) as her primary text. Her research will involve searching academic journal databases, selecting and summarizing the arguments of other scholars and critics, and incorporating their arguments within her own analysis. She will also conduct research on the film's historical context. A description of her specific topic is forthcoming.
