ENGL 9017 - Genre, Adaptation and Hybridity


3 cr.
In this course we will study writers who create literature in more than one genre or who defy genre by destabilizing fixed systems of classification. Artistic combinations include poet/novelist, poet/musician and novelist/screenwriter. There are three sections to the course. First we will consider an author’s thematic and stylistic consistencies from one genre to another, as well as his or her reasons for choosing to write in one particular genre. Second we will consider the links between originals and adaptations. The final section of the course examines hybridity as a concept in identity and its corresponding multi-generic textual expression.
