Twilight: The Texts and The Fandom in the News and Week 4 re-cap
Thanks to some recent and pending news coverage of the course (as here), more and more comments and followers are coming in. Please keep your comments coming! I will reply as often as possible, but as I am back to full-time teaching and also editing an anthology of essays on the saga, I will sometimes be slow (or even remiss!) in getting back to comments. Until I do, please keep the dialogue going amongst yourselves!
As per a Monday recap, students met in groups to discuss their final project ideas and the classroom was buzzing with conversation. They are in the planning stages as of yet with many great ideas. Some of these include:
* a True Blood/Twilight mash-up of sorts that would detail stories about the two series and what would happen if they existed in the same fictional universe — i.e. what would happen if Rosalie and Tara were to meet?
* putting the saga into fairy-tale book form (which will include illustrations, re-telling the tale in accordance with the genre, etc)
* a field-research project focussed on the Eclipse DVD release date
*a psychological blog focussing on the mental health and psychological prognosis of the characters and their relationships
* a number of film projects, including a new take on the meadow scene, the saga from Laurent’s perspective, and a spoken word version of the saga
For those of you participating in the course virtually, I would love to have you submit guest posts. If you are interested in doing so, email me at drnataliewilson at gmail dot com.
