With 25 films in 58 years, the James Bond franchise has become the longest continually-running and the second-highest-grossing series in film history. We will analyse this phenomenon by looking at the spy figure that Ian Fleming invented 67 years ago, first on page and then on screen. We will discuss as many of the novels and films as possible, with students becoming "specialists" for one example. We will investigate questions with regard to gender and genre, original and adaptation, politics and technology, as presented in the novels, short stories, films, and spin-offs.Buy and read: Ian Fleming (2008), Quantum of Solace: The Complete James Bond Short Stories, London: Penguin.
