Adaptation: Text, Image, Culture (EAF2510)

30 credits

The process of adapting material from literary forms, such as scripts, short stories, novels and plays into film, television and other screen media is one of the oldest, most dominant and most ubiquitous strategies in the creative industries.  By analysing a wide range of adaptations in different forms you will be able to understand the rich and complex relationships between textual and visual media at distinct historical moments and in specific cultural contexts. This module offers students the opportunity to understand adaptation as a creative process and adaptations as cultural products.
