Cross-Cultural Literature and Film - SLCS4205

Year - 2020

This unit will look at theoretical approaches to the notion of cross-culturalism and its realisations in literature and film. We will examine how these media are able to combine and create elements from different cultural perspectives. We will also examine questions such as: how do cross-cultural perspectives manifest themselves in literary and cinematic productions? What do the notions of the familiar and the foreign entail?
