Lecture | The Boy, the Bachelor and the Bride: Adaptation as Variation in 3 Films


This talk considers the process of adaptation in The Window, Rear Window and The Bride Wore Black. Rather than worry about whether the films get the Cornell Woolrich source material "right," this talk envisions the films as unique performances or variations of their source texts. The films each amplify certain themes and components of the plots while abandoning others, and, in some cases, supplement the original material. In this sense, adaptation can be seen as a kind of authorship that simultaneously reflects the concerns of the film's author and provides a new lens on the original Woolrich story.   Lecturer: Pamela Robertson Wojcik, University of Notre Dame

Discussion | Ghosts in the Machine: Haunted Memories and Reimagined Futures


How would living under Communism have shaped your identity? What about being the child of Jehovah’s Witnesses; or a wife deceived by her husband; or living in the continual (and reasonable) fear of attack by a ravenous wolf? Perhaps, if you were affected by such conditions, you could ignore the “monster in the house,” and form successful friendships, relationships and careers. Then again, your experience with that fraught backdrop might linger, stretching into future generations. In this panel, speak with four authors whose novels and short stories bring to life the specters that haunt them — some political, some familial, some ineffable. These ghosts in the machine have colored their characters’ views of themselves and the world around them. We explore the question of how those who form their selfhood in the shadow of dark influences can use memory to illuminate their reality and liberate their truth.  With: Stefanie de Velasco Laura Freudenthaler Gianna Molinari John Wray Jenny Zhang

Author Reading | Illuminations on Market Street: On Sex and Loss


Benjamin Heim Shepard's story begins in San Francisco in the early 1990s: Cab is on the deep end of a losing streak. After having been dumped yet again, he moves to Haight-Ashbury fresh out of college. It is the middle of a recession, before the dot-com boom, and AIDS is an immediate and untreatable reality. A story about AIDS and sex, acting up and praying for the dead, this is a story about living and fighting in the face of insurmountable challenges.
