Double Visions: Rewriting, Repainting, and Refilming the Classics|
In this course, students will read and/or view European classics and their rewrites to analyze various modalities of rewrites: plagiarism, parody, homage, cultural translation, subversion, intertextuality, imitation, appropriation, and recycling. Most of the classics will be read/viewed in their entirety. Due to time constraints, however, some classics might be approached through key excerpts.
