Intermediality: Between Word, Image, and Sound
AS.061.271 (01)

This course explores film adaptation by considering how words, images, and sounds offer different affordances and constraints for creative expression. A central goal is to conceive of adaptation outside of typical discussions of fidelity to a source work and instead consider how different artistic media open up unique opportunities for storytelling. To this end, we will draw on a number of different intermedial translations, which may include from novel to film (The Night of the Hunter, from Davis Grubb’s book to James Agee’s screenplay to Charles Laughton’s film), from short story to film (The Turin Horse), from graphic novel to film (Ghost World) or television series (HBO’s Watchmen), from personal essay to documentary film (James Baldwin’s The Devil Finds Work and I Am Not Your Negro), from poetry to film (O Brother, Where Art Thou), from play to film (A Raisin in the Sun and My Own Private Idaho), from radio drama to film (Sorry, Wrong Number), and film-to-film homage (Far From Heaven and All That Heaven Allows). We will also delve into the vagaries of film-to-book novelizations and the curious case of concurrently writing film and book, as in Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clark’s collaboration on the film and novel 2001: A Space Odyssey (both adapted from a short story).

Considering Ourselves: Adventures in Autobiography
AS.220.203 (01)

The aim of the course is twofold: to give a sketch of the history of English-language autobiographical writing, and to encourage students to work on their own autobiographical projects. To this end, the weekly meetings will be divided into two parts: in the first part, I’ll be allocating three extracts from existing autobiographies for discussion (some relatively ancient, some modern), and in the second part we'll discuss extracts from the on-going work of two class members. In other words, applicants to the course should expect to read and comment on several pieces of existing work each week, as well as undertaking a semester-long autobiographical project of their own devising.

Readings in Fiction: The Novella
AS.220.305 (01)

In this class, we’ll examine the novella, a work of fiction that’s longer than a short story but shorter than a novel. Or as Ian McEwan defines it: “something…long enough for a reader to inhabit a world or a consciousness and be kept there, short enough to be read in a sitting or two and for the whole structure to be held in mind at first encounter.” We’ll read a variety of novellas, both classic and contemporary, studying them from the perspective of craft and using them as inspirations for our own writing. Authors may include Tolstoy, Kafka, Chekhov, Melville, Larsen, Juan Rulfo, James Welch, Gwendolyn Brooks, Muriel Spark, Philip Roth, Shirley Jackson, Tao Lin, and César Aira.
