FTDM 10073 Media Adaptations

Examination of film/television adaptations from literature, with emphasis on the discussion of style, structure, and characterization, and on the cultural factors which affect adaptations (financial expectations of different media, censorship and self-regulation of content, etc.) Topics may include film/television programs adapted from plays, short fiction, or novels; the course may also address novelizations of stories which first appeared as films or television programs, musical adaptations of non-musical films, and remakes.
