EN 3370 - Shakespeare on Screen

For more than 400 years, Shakespeare’s works have been reconceived, adapted, and rewritten to suit various historical, cultural, and critical contexts. This course explores a selection of Shakespeare’s plays alongside 20th and 21st century film and media adaptations from across the globe. We will read a selection of Shakespeare’s plays and consider how their adaptations both model critical methods of interpretation and renew audience engagement through creative re-imaginings. Throughout, we will explore Shakespeare’s works not as a fixed body of literature but as dynamic invitation to invention.

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