launched a new course this fall, SHAKESPEARE VISIONS (ENGL 16), an
on-line film and text class where students compare various film versions
of the plays with the text.

Shakespeare Visions: Film & Text . . .
ENGL 16 - 3 units - Transfer: CSU
Shakespeare's plays were written to be heard and seen. English 16
Shakespeare Visions offers an entirely new way to enjoy the works of
William Shakespeare. In addition to reading selected plays, students
will compare film versions of the works and participate in an on-line
discussion forum. Students access various films through Netflix and
other commercial sources and view them at their leisure over the course
of a 16-week semester.
English 16 offers 3-units of academic credit, transferable to 4-year
For further information on this exciting new course, contact Allston
Instructor Allston James' plays have been performed locally as well as
in New York and San Francisco. His new drama, The Lated Traveler, was
semi-finalist in the 2008 Hyperion Project California Playwriting
Competition and received an Off-Broadway reading in April 2009.
