This advanced interdisciplinary course explores the concept of transformation in art, literature, and film, beginning with a study of Ovid's classical text, Metamorphoses and expanding to include modernist (Kafka) and contemporary versions of monstrosity, hybridity, and the grotesque. This course will be organized around independent student projects, but students should be prepared to engage philosophical, literary, visual and theoretical texts in weekly seminars.
STUDENTS WILL BE EVALUATED ON THE QUALITY OF THEIR PREPARATION FOR SEMINAR DISCUSSION, ON SHORT PAPERS AND A FINAL PROJECT.
SINCE THIS COURSE MEETS ONCE A WEEK, MORE THAN ONE ABSENCE MAY RESULT IN A NOEVAL. CONTACT THE INSTRUCTOR, IF YOU HAVE MISSED A CLASS.
