The internship to be held at the University of Columbia, New York, aims to access primary sources of research, as well as foster cultural and methodological exchanges for the doctoral project "Hollywood and the modern theatrical dramaturgy: intermediality and dissensus in the family melodrama of the 1950s" (ECA/USP). The doctoral research project seeks to investigate the relationship between theatrical dramaturgy and film adaptation with a focus on the screenplay as an intermediary media. We hope to investigate the relationship between fundamental works of modern American theatre such as The Glass Menagerie (Tennessee Williams, 1948), Death of a Salesman (Arthur Miller, 1950) and Long's Journey into Night (Eugene O'Neil, 1956), and their first film adaptations (Irving Rapper, 1950 / László Benedek, 1951 / Sidney Lumet, 1962). The research hypothesis is that the intermediate process strengthens an aesthetic, thematic and discursive dissent, especially in relation to the family melodrama of the 1950s.
