Children’s Literature into Film
Comparative analysis of classic and award winning novels (nineteenth century to the present) and films based on them, with attention to cultural history of the child and literature for children. Emphasis on recurrent themes and literary tropes and key problems for critics, teachers, and parents. As well as basic terms and strategies for literary analysis, students will learn and use basics of film analysis. Distinct from children’s literature courses offered in most departments/colleges of education in that its primary focus is the critical analysis of literature, film, and culture, rather than linking texts to child development or guiding students in appropriate methods for selecting texts for courses in primary and secondary education. The course is nonetheless useful and interesting to future teachers and anyone who spends time with children or is interested in writing for children.
