          Shakespeare and Film                              
With the advent of film production in the 20th century, Shakespeare's work found another venue for staging. What happens to a Shakespeare play when it is filmed? Can works intended for the stage convert to successful entities in another genre? This course examines the metamorphosis from play to screen, and asks students to examine the issues around such conversion and adaptation. Possible plays for reading and watching include Henry V, Twelfth Night, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, and A Midsummer Night's Dream. For more information contact rfarabau@umbc.edu.
