In this module, students will define, understand, and implement theories of adaptation, transmediality, and intertextuality in the creative arts. They will recognise and appraise a variety of examples of musical, filmic, and dramatic adaptation. They will develop the ability to analyse art forms through a detailed and close reading of a small number of examples. They will compare and contrast aspects of the various media through which adaptations modulate.
