TRANSNATIONAL SHAKESPEARES

Listed in: English, as ENGL-95

Faculty

Anston L. Bosman (Section 01)

Description

By studying selected Shakespeare plays and their afterlives in literature and performance, we will explore the fate of culture over centuries of global mobility.  What qualities of Shakespeare’s works render them peculiarly adaptable to a world of intercultural conflict, borrowing and fusion?  And what light does the translation and adaptation of Shakespeare shed on the dialectic of cultural persistence and change?  Our examples may include European literature and theater; American silent film and musicals; post-colonial appropriations in India, Africa and Latin America; and versions in the drama, opera and cinema of China and Japan.  The course includes an independent research project on a chosen case study.

Requisite:  English 35 or 36.  Limited to 15 students.  Fall semester.  Professor Bosman.

If Overenrolled: Preference given to senior and junior English majors.
