- Screen Adaptations: Rewiring the Text
|Coordinator(s)||Yvonne Griggs (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
Screen adaptations form a vital part of the cinematic and televisual landscape. This unit explores the creative and industrial processes at work in the adaptation of a wide variety of texts to screen by examining their transformation from one medium, genre or cultural/production context to another. It considers how such processes shape the narrative for the new audience. It asks the question, "What is involved in the successful adaptation of a story destined for visual consumption?", and engages students in the practice of textual transformation as well as the analysis of existing adaptations.
