Hello, I’m Rob Farr and I will maintain this blog for the History and New Media course (HIST 697) that I am taking during the Spring ’15 semester at GMU. I also teach the History of World Cinema (FAVS 225) at GMU, a distance learning version in the Spring and a classroom version in the Fall. I want to design an interactive Film History website that can be used by students no matter which version of the course they are taking. Because my passion is early film (roughly 1895-1930), this will be the subject matter of the website I create for this course.
Here’s a little autobiographical video I made for a Film and Video Studies grad course in Fall ’14
