Film Studies and Literature

Literature and film share a passion for expressing ideas and emotions, transporting us into different worlds, real and imaginary. Exploring these worlds gives us new perspectives on our own lives, but also on the experiences of others. Examining literature and film in parallel provides powerful insights into the role of the arts in contemporary society. We can also deepen our knowledge of the creative and cultural forces shaping literary and cinematic forms and their audiences. On this course, you will enhance your knowledge and enjoyment of the arts by studying the mutual interactions between literature and film since the 1800s. Learning from leading academics, you will engage with different viewpoints and styles of representation, including topics such as adaptation and realism. Alongside literary and cinematic classics, you will study popular genres, documentary, biography and animation. You will also learn about the social, cultural and economic changes affecting these forms by examining issues such as criticism and marketing, transmedia fictions, and arts festivals.
