Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Apart from its local interest this course concerns itself with the various ways in which the historical Dr. Sigmund Freud of Vienna is represented and reflected in texts that easily qualify as biographical 'fictions' (i.e. stage-plays and feature films as bio-plays and bio-pics about Freud). Examples to be studied include:
- Henry Denker: "A Far Country" (aka "Berggasse 19") (1961)
- "Freud" (1962; dir. John Huston)
- Terry Johnson: "Hysteria: Or Fragments of an Analysis of an Obsessional Neurosis" (1993)
- Christopher Hampton: "The Talking Cure" (2002)
- "A Dangerous Method" (2011; dir. David Cronenberg).

Assessment and permitted materials

Regular attendance, active participation in class, PowerPoint presentation, final test (written).

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

It is the aim of this course to introduce students to biofictions about Sigmund Freud and explore intermedial connections between drama and film.

Examination topics

Team presentations, class discussion; classroom discourse will be supplemented by visual aids.

Reading list

A customised anthology will be available from StudienServiceStelle Anglistik after September 15. Further material for obligatory and ancillary reading will be provided on an e-learning platform. Therefore, students are asked to familiarise themselves in advance with the MOODLE platform. For introduction and self-guided tour, please see <https://elearning.univie.ac.at/>.
