Shakespeare on Film|
Spring 2009 not offered
Through close analysis of filmed versions of Shakespeare's plays, this course will examine a variety of critical and interpretive issues that have defined contemporary Shakespeare studies (including the politics of reception, questions of textual editing, historiography, and the representation of sexuality, gender, and race). While no prior study of Shakespeare is requisite, students may want to familiarize themselves with the plays we will study beforehand, since a great deal of time will be devoted to analyzing films.
