LIT 241 Murder on Screen and Stage

3 hours

This course explores how murder has been used on screen, stage, and page to entertain, to titillate, and to critique. The course will consider how murder works in narrative and performance, and what representations of murder may mean for us, especially as they move from page to stage to screen. We will also consider questions such as: Who is a murderer? Who gets murdered? What are the consequences of murder? What does the audience or reader get out of murder stories?
