Course summary

Film is beneficial as mode of engagement and inquiry in relation to literary texts, and literature can help film specialists to analyse different forms of text and adaptation. You might find yourself referring to film sources as part of your literary studies, as well as reading literary texts as a way of developing your understanding of film and film history. Studied together, these subjects allow students to gain a detailed understanding of communication in all its forms, from historical sources and documents, to contemporary literary texts, documentaries, and film adaptations.The programme is specifically designed so that you will have a foundational Level 1 year that introduces you to the skills required for University-level Literature and Film Studies. You will investigate the ways in which these two forms of storytelling have blended with one another for almost a century. This will include the study of the adaptation process which includes a range of literary forms such as the novel, plays and comic books. You will also consider the film industry and the ways in which historical fiction is used to make the British film industry a global presence and the ways in which cinematic universes (such as the Marvel universe) draw upon the traditions of the graphic novel which has recently dominated popular cinema. All our introductory Literature modules seek to equip students with an understanding of historical developments in the form of the written word. These modules provide you with a basic grounding in key texts, major historical moments, and important critical terms that will be applicable across the rest of your degree.
