SHAKESPEARE AND THE MOVING IMAGE

In this subject, students will be introduced to five Shakespeare plays and a number of screen versions of them.

The subject is taught in conjunction with The Australian Centre for the Moving Image, which will screen the films and provide a number of the lectures. Plays and screen versions covered will be: Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, Much Ado About Nothing, Macbeth, and King Lear.
