Instructor:

This class will examine the idea of adaptation as it intersects with the processes of writing, producing, and storytelling. We shall ground our explorations of these ideas within three core narratives: Shakespeare’s play The Taming of the Shrew, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes detective stories, and Helen Gurley Brown’s advice book Sex and the Single Girl. The class will culminate in an adaptive project, created either individually or in collaboration with other class members.
