It was more a course about the history of wars (Guernica, WW1, Iwo Jima, The Battle of Mogadishu) than a discussions of images. The best parts were the discussion about Stalins use of images and an interview with photojournalist Julio Etchard. The lecturer, an eloquent british economic historian, seems a bit too fascinated by wars, which shone through, when quoting elaboratively his knowledge on different weapons and aircrafts. It's still an interesting course though. But the bummer is the way the quizzes are designed: They will aks about certain irrelevant numbers in the reading material rather than comprehension of that quite comprehensive material. So I decided to just watch the lectures as I did some other courses and couldn't dedicate as much time (11-12 hours if you do the reading at least as a foreigner) on the reading materials (and with the mere output that the understanding won't help you on the quizzes if you can't memorize some odd number).
