EN 3850 - Literature and Film

This course examines the art of adaption (i.e., the process of translating a narrative from one medium and cultural context to another). Looking closely at the process of translating literature (i.e., novels, short stories, and plays) into film, we will study the way global cross-cultural exchange and encounter get mediated by storytelling conventions that are specific to either the medium of the story (book or movie) or the cultural perspective of the storyteller (author or director).

Prerequisite: EN 1110  and EN 1120 , or EN 1140 , or EN 1150 .
