GERM 366 - Literature and Film


In this course we read closely a selection of German literary texts and compare them to their film adaptations. The literature may range from German “classics” to popular “best sellers,” and the films from critically acclaimed cases to box office successes, as a way of gauging social diversity in interests and taste. Beyond focusing on literary analysis, the course will address questions such as: how the written word is translated to the screen; what happens when the film adaptation occurs in another language and culture; what difference it makes if the work was written in the 1920s and filmed in the 2000s. Taught in German. Prerequisite(s):   or GERM 309  . Alternate years. (4 Credits)
