3. Course contents *

This course examines the adaptation processes that focus on film, literature and theatre. The course offers theoretical insights that help to understand what happens when transferring narrative and formal material from one medium to another. Both semiotic and media studies approaches are used, focuing less on the loss in an adaptation than on the variation that arises in a new media context. A number of case studies discuss the concrete practice of adaptation.
