Modern Jane Austen
1 Academic Unit $158
Jane Austen hasn't written a novel in nearly 200 years-so why do new Austen books and film adaptations come out every year? Explore books like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but focus on film adaptations like Clueless, Bride and Prejudice (Bollywood Jane!) and Bridget Jones's Diary-and have the chance to create your own Austen adaptation. No outside reading is required and no previous knowledge of Austen's novels is needed. If you love Austen, want to improve your grasp on basic elements of film, or just want to know what's up with modernized Jane-come prepared for great readings, entertaining films, and lively discussions.
