How to Adapt Ulysses
Fall 2024
Taught By: Caveh Zahedi
Section: AX

CRN: 17543

Credits: 4

In this class, we will read and analyze James Joyce’s Ulysses in order to collaborate on the editing of a sprawling work-in-progress adaptation of the novel by the instructor. In other words, this is simultaneously a literature class and an advanced editing class. Each student will be responsible for editing down several hours of documentary footage into concise and carefully crafted segments commensurate not only with the content of Joyce’s novel but also with his formal innovations. Prior experience editing in Adobe Premiere is required. Upon successful completion of the class, students will receive assistant editor credit on the film.
