Core 100 Adaptation in Digital Age: Home

This LibGuide is designed for students to locate film and television adaptations of the novels we will be reading in class.

Adaptation in Digital Age

This guide for CORE 100 gives you options for viewing several of adaptations of the course readings on DVD, through the library's streaming video collections, through The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County's system, or from other commercial streaming sites such as Amazon Prime, Hulu and Netflix.

See below for information on accessing the DVDs, and click on the tabs along the top of the guide for links to the streaming versions.

Note: To access items from The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, you will either ned to 

  1. search OhioLINK, through Xavier's library webpage. There’s a link at the top of every record that says Search Ohio. When you click on that, you get a list of the item available in the public libraries and can request it just like you do regular OhioLINK items. 
  2. obtain a (free) account/library card and check out the DVD there. If you act early enough, you can have the DVD delivered to and reserved at the library branch closest to you. 

Course Description

This First-Year Seminar focuses on Adaptation in the Digital Age. We will be examining adaptation first by reading three source novels: Fences by George Orwell, The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

We will study theories of adaptation--concepts like fidelity, appropriation, representation, fandoms, and color-blind casting.  Students will apply the concepts we are learning in class as they watch at least two adaptations per novel.

We will also investigate how digital media is changing the way we consume, interact with, and tell stories. We'll examine how streaming services and even YouTube influence adaptation.
