6 points, SCA Band 1, 0.125 EFTSL

Undergraduate Faculty of Arts

Leader: Rose Lucas


Caulfield First semester 2007 (Day)


This unit will consider the ideological and structural effects of translation form literary to visual text. This will be achieved through a close reading of a number of paired texts (ie. novel and film). Students will develop analytical skills for reading with both specific genres, and extend these skills though seminar debate and written work.


Essay (2500 words): 60%
Class Paper (2000 words): 40%
The class paper will be presented as the basis for the group discussion and students will be expected to incorporate that discussion into the final draft of that essay to be submitted one week later. In addition to the presentation of seminar papers, third year students will also be expected to demonstrate broader critical reading and greater analytical grasp of the topic.
