ENGL 616B - Spring 2021 

Thriller and Suspense Films

This course examines the narrative structure of the thriller made famous in the cinema of Alfred Hitchcock. How does suspense function in various thrillers following in the vein of Hitchcock and its updated versions in recent cinema?  How do characters regain control and authorship in narratives that place them radically at a loss of control? Looking at sub-genres such as the spy, conspiracy, crime, legal, psychological, action, and sci-fi thriller, we will try to understand the multifaceted possibilities of thrillers to confront audiences with a sense of loss of power, of larger and mysterious forces of history determining the fate of the individual, while also assuring them of their powerful position as spectators observing protagonists engaged in uninvited conflicts and struggles for survival. We will also ask how recent thrillers accommodate the expression of identity such as class, race, gender, and nationality as well as their intersectionality. Filmmakers in addition to Hitchcock (North by Northwest) will include David Fincher (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Christopher Nolan (Memento), Stephen Frears (Dirty Pretty Things), Kathryn Bigelow (Hurt Locker), Sam Mendes (Skyfall), and Joe Wright (Hanna). No prerequisites. This course requires regular weekly use of Canvas and internet access.  Streaming fees may apply as well.

In Spring 2021 the special topic of this section will be 'Thriller & Suspense Films'.

CRN: 56105
In this course, intermediate creative writers will learn the craft of writing scripts for film and television. Students will continue to explore the elements of effective storytelling by writing and significantly revising loglines, outlines, and complete short screenplays. The course will combine in-depth analysis of classic and contemporary screenplays (including shorts, teleplays, and feature-length films) with lectures, writing exercises, and peer workshops. Topics will include dramatic structure, professional formatting and planning, and how to develop vividly compelling characters, scenes, conflict and dialogue. The aim of the course will not be to simply reinforce existing narrative principles but rather to test the validity of existing conventions. Throughout we will address the questions: What makes a story relevant, moving, thrilling, or meaningful? Why does this story need to be told visually? What makes a great script great? Prereq: ENGL 501, ENGL 526 or ENGL 527 or Permission of the Instructor. Course may be repeated up to a maximum of 8 credits.

Additional Course Details: 

In “Contact Zones,” we’ll consider how individual and national identities are shaped in a world where people are on the move, literally and metaphorically, voluntarily and involuntarily.  When borders are crossed and histories are remade, what is lost and what is gained?  As Mohsin Hamid observes, “To a certain extent we are all refugees, at least in an emotional sense. Migration is the fundamental nature of what it is to be a human being. A human being is somebody with a particular genetic configuration: yes. But a human being is also someone who migrates through time.”

Through fiction, drama, poetry and film, we’ll explore the myriad ways in which we learn to “see,” “unsee,” and “resee” one another across the borders of sexuality, religion, ethnicity, and nationality.  Writers will include Chimamanda Adichie, Ocean Vuong, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Lynn Nottage, Tommy Orange, Mohsin Hamid, and Carmen Maria Machado, among others.  Supplemental readings will provide frameworks for talking about a range of critical issues. 

English 693: Contact Zones is a Writing Intensive course that fulfills the Theory/ Poetics requirement for the Literary Studies option and the Digital Language Arts option within the Literary Arts and Studies major. At UNH Manchester, it also fulfills the diversity requirement for the B.A. in English Teaching.  4 credits.

English 693 may be repeated for credit, up to a maximum of 8 credits, provided that content is not significantly duplicated.
