FSEM: Flip Page and Catch Flik
Academic Term and Year
Area of Study
Maybe you're in line at a movie theater. Maybe you're searching Netflix. Maybe you finally find a movie, THE movie, you want to watch. That's when someone—a friend? a bystander? the ticket booth worker?—says, ”The book is way better than the movie.” Is he or she right? Is the movie always worse than the book it's based on? (If so, why make the movie in the first place?) Do movies have limitations that books don't have? Do books have limitations that movies don't have? Do some kinds of books make better movies? Do movies have an obligation to be loyal to the books they're based on? These are the sort of questions we'll be asking in this course. By the end of the semester, we will have read several books, watched several movies, and (hopefully) come up with loads of interesting thoughts about both.
