Course ObjectiveStudents are introduced to concepts of remediation of the literary work
and be able to analyse the relationship beween the written and visual
texts (for instance, written text, film, game). They will examine how
the remediated text can be used to examine particular cultural contexts
Course ContentOne and the same story can be told in different media: think of a novel
being adapted to film, play, television series, or game. What do
all these versions of the same story have in common (medium-independent
narrative aspects) and how do they differ (medium-specific narrative
aspects)? During the course students apply these concepts to a narrative
text of their
own choosing and will independently research the remediation of a
'classic' literary work in a visual medium.
