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%
Test (2 hours): 40% 3rd year students are required to demonstrate broader critical reading and greater analytical grasp of the topic than students studying at 2nd year level and will be invited to make tutorial presentations on their essay topics.
