Literature in a Visual Culture 1

Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

Students become acquainted with various theories of narrative
(narratology) in relation to different media (for instance, written
text, film, comics, television series, game).

Inhoud vak

One and the same story can be told in different media: think of a novel
being adapted to film, comics, television series, and/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)? Per meeting, we discuss a narratological concept (for example,
embedded story, focalization, metafiction, narrator, story-world) and
its different manifestations in various media. Subsequently, students
apply the concept to a narrative text (written and/or visual) of their
own choosing.
