Hours & Credits
This course aims to introduce students to a range of Shakespearean adaptations for the stage (including, for example, post-colonial, feminist, and queer adaptations). It explores the relationship between adaptation and source text(s) and between text and context, as well as considering the key critical and theoretical discourses surrounding Shakespearean appropriations and the practice of adaptation; although the focus will be primarily on stage adaptations, students may have the opportunity to look at adaptations in other media too.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
