    The aim of this course is to present a global literary phenomenon across romance language world cultures that can be briefly described as the impact that the medium of cinema had and has on the medium of literature. In other words, we will look at how cinema influenced and influences literature and how it was and it is represented in literature in translation of romance language world regions. Therefore, during the course we will read and analyze novels translated into English that belong to this "genre" and we will read and discuss critical texts on this subject. Students will be encouraged to offer their own approach to the study of this literary trend and to suggest and examine other narratives that can belong to this literary phenomenon.

      Course Description
    The one credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps transition to UB through an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 198 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
