Multimodal Design: Galapagos & Speculative Fiction Option A: Galapagos Genre Translation Overview Students will design a project that translates the main themes, motifs, and/or arguments of Kurt Vonnegut s Galapagos (1985) into a new genre. To be clear: I am not talking about thematic genres, like horror versus Westerns versus action. I am referring to genres that require full adaptation of the form and medium of the original. Turn the novel into a song, a comic book, a short film, a one act play or teleplay, a sculpture or painting, or something completely different. The length and quality of the project should reflect 1) the conventions of the genre that you re participating in and 2) the high standards of university work. This means no stick figures, no iPhone recordings, etc. If you are concerned about the length or quality of your project, contact me early in the process (not the night or weekend before the project is due).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
