COURSE DESCRIPTION

Where do stories begin and where do they end? Why are they told and retold? How does adapting a text for a film, video-game, or other media change its essential ideas? Is the work improved by moving with the times, or, is there some magic lost? In this course students will learn about original texts and their remakes through a range of interactive activities and debates promoting critical and creative thinking.
