MA Seminar (2019/2020 & 2020/2021): INTERMEDIAL ADAPTATION

The focus of this seminar  is on the process and results of adapting various types of artistic texts (such as short stories, graphic novels, games, etc.) into the medium of films and TV series. Various literary works and examples of visual culture are analyzed, e.g., paintings, illustrations, photographs, videoclips, and, most importantly, TV show episodes and feature films. Elements of film language, such as editing, framing, lighting, camera work, sound, acting, script, are covered as well the evolution of film and TV genres. During the second year the seminar is devoted to selected cultural and ideological aspects of the production, distribution and reception of film, particularly in the context  of commercialization of the film industry and its being influenced by the new media. The seminar participants also study main research paradigms in the field of adaptation studies and learn how to write an M.A. thesis.
