The purpose of the course is to present the key concepts of the relationship between literature and other forms of cultural and media articulation. The course will focus on the interrelation between spatial imagination and constructions of gender and identity, while addressing, in particular, translation and intermedia issues. 

This course is designed as an introduction to the relationship between literature, film and the cartographic imagination. In particular, it focuses on questions such as: What is a map? How and to what extent can spatial imaginations, maps and globes be translated into texts and films? Which role do spatial projections play in the negotiation of gender and identity constructions?
