Shakespeare’s plays are as enticing to filmmakers and visual artists as they were in 1899 when the first Shakespeare film was screened. Since then the number of filmic contributions has increased steadily. Divided into three projects depending on the choice of play (Hamlet, Macbeth and Othello) and drawing equally on traditional as well as contemporary ideas, that have emerged in the fields of cultural studies, transnational film, world cinema as well as filmic storytelling, we will explore how three plays by William Shakespeare are re-imagined in different linguistic and cultural contexts in selected late 20th Century and post-2000 productions. Focusing on Vishal Bhardwaj’s Shakespeare trilogy, course participants will be encouraged to investigate these films’ engagement with sexuality and gender, race and ethnicity and questions of power. Since some of the participants are required to submit a research-based term paper, we will use parts of our seminar discussions to the development of topics, the formulation of a thesis statement, as well as considerations about the methodological approaches of writing such a paper.
Additional secondary sources can be accessed in the "Semesterapparat", a reference only section on the third floor of the library building. A number of DVDs will be available in the “Semesterapparat” in the “Mediathek”, located on the fourth floor of the library building: http://www.suub.uni-bremen.de/standorte/zentrale/mediathek/.
