教育目標

課程概述

Literature and Film is an elective course that aims to introduce students to the core concepts and relationships between literature and film. Students will learn about the nature of literature to film translations, the differences between the language of literature and film and how one would go about translating short stories, novels, poetry, and plays into film. Furthermore, students will follow two case studies (Jane Austen’s Emma and Shakespeare’s Macbeth) by reading the novel/play and watching and discussing the many translations of the texts into films. At the end of the semester student groups will adapt a short story, play or section of a novel into a short film to present to the class.
