Introduction In The Anthropology Of Art
Introduction in the elementary concepts of anthropology of art. Conditions of the emergence of art and material terms of art production in primitive and traditional societies. Comparison with the place of artist and the work of art in late societies. Presentation of the relation of art with the social life in various traditional societies, of its role in the visual communication and in the homeostasis of communities and, finally, of the creativity of artist and his operation in the societies. Art is considered through the structural relations that has with the other social phenomena in the total system of culture, in the mediations and in the particular operation that it fulfils. Also, it is explored the reciprocal constitution of the various parts of which it is composed (criticism, museums, institutions), the interdependence that they form (e.g. the relations of seventh art with the other arts), as well as the contradictions they articulate and the total spectrum of production and consumption of art products.

History Of Cinema
The aim of the course is the presentation of cinema as a total social phenomenon the consideration of which requires the simultaneous analysis of all his parameters: historical, anthropological and sociological, aesthetic and theoretical. Thus the ways of manufacture and layout of cinematographic types are presented in the course of development of narrative cinema and, simultaneously, the multiple operations of cinematographic film as historical testimony-evidence of a concrete historical reality. On the other hand it is attempted the consideration of cinema in an anthropological way, as a modern performing mechanism of reproduction of ideology and of stereotypes in the industrial society of 20th century. The various cinema genres (action-adventure, biopics, comedy, contemporary crime, horror, western, film noir, melodrama, comedy, science fiction, musicals, war films, etc) will be analysed in relation with the projection and the analysis of these characteristic films of genres.

Theory Of Cinema
The course attempts to introduce the student in the consideration of cinematographic product from the point of view of aesthetic analysis. The expressive means of cinema, the way of configuration of this means in their historical development, as well as the relation of cinema with the other arts, mainly with the photograph, the painting and the theatre are explored. The objective is the familiarization of students with the basic significances and the terms of cinematographic analysis ("language", system, codes, semiotic and historical-comparative approach). Finally, they are presented and are analysed, with the simultaneous projection of characteristic extracts of cinematographic films, the national schools, the movements, the aesthetic tendencies, the expressive searches and the theories that stamped the development of world cinema during his course of development.

Anthropology Of Art
According to anthropology and sociology art is not psychological but mainly social phenomenon, because it involves the communication and the collective participation either in the production or in the grasping of artistic work. As every social phenomenon, art depends on the stage of historical development, on the social organisation and on the frame within which it is produced or is distributed. Art is not conceived in the same way in all the societies. In this context, through the historical examination of phenomena of art and culture, they are explored the historical and social conditions that determine, mainly, the frame within which art takes place. Simultaneously, based on the anthropological theory, the course focuses on the interpretation of the phenomena of art and culture through the relative autonomy which they present in order the point of views of constructivism and reflectionism to be criticised.
