Humanities and Social Sciences building, Rm. 225

English Department

Continuing our celebration of Black History Month, the second screening of the Stage to Screen film series will be the modern adaptation of Othello, simply titled O (2000), starring Mekhai Phifer and Josh Hartnett.

Stage to Screen is a free, introductory cinema course designed to provide participants with an opportunity to learn about film adaptations of major theatrical works in a low-stakes environment. The spring 2020 semester series includes five films to be shown in in HSS 225 with selected readings and a preface by Literature and Criticism PhD student Caroline Speller accompanying each film. To gain a little more insight and discuss more, all are encouraged  to go to the series blog
