Obermann Center Special Topics Seminar: Parody, Plagiarism, Patrimony: Don Quixote in the Age of Electronic Reproduction, Fall 2015
In fall 2015, the Obermann Humanities Symposium "Parody, Plagiarism, Patrimony: Don Quixote in the Age of Electronic Reproduction" will be held on the UI campus (October 22-25, 2015). This seminar leading up to the symposium will prepare graduate students for informed and fully engaged participation in the symposium and related events by offering an advanced, intensive introduction to Quixote studies, with a particular focus on its continued impact on world literature, art, music, and film. The symposium will feature presentations by scholars, writers, and artists whose work will be examined in the seminar and thus offer students a rare opportunity to interact directly with the scholars and writers of the work they have studied. An additional follow-up session will consider students' perspectives in light of the symposium. This 1-credit, S/U course will involve five meetings leading up to, and attendance at, the Fall 2015 Obermann Humanities Symposium, plus an additional follow-up session.
