TR 12:30-1:45 pm
Course Number: 

In this course,students will examine some of the the ways in which filmmakers and writers of short fiction explore, develop and present themes and characters central to the human experience, concentrating on films drawn from or parallel to literary sources, with an emphasis on the differences, similarities, possibilities and problems that the coordination of genres generates. Students in this class will have the opportunity to consider the ways in which creative artists in each field use the methods and materials of their disciplines; to assess the ways in which traditional techniques and evolving advances in each field are suitable to their subject; and to evaluate the applicability of varying approaches to the social and cultural settings of their works.
