LITERATURE AND CINEMA: ANALYZING THE ARTS
This course investigates the relationships between two media, film and literature, studying links across genre, structure and style. The course explores how art challenges cross-cultural, political, and aesthetic boundaries. The course follows a three-tiered focus with the purpose of making students better academic writers and better literary readers while utilizing reading, interpretation, and creation of film scripts. This course is structured to balance both classic and contemporary literature, allowing students to draw connections among the plays of Shakespeare, Miller, and Shaw with more modern works like The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Room.
