Presentation and Discussion Questions

Hey guys! I’ve attached a link to my presentation recording, and my discussion questions are below!

◦Why were the discussions about African American culture mostly removed from the movie adaptation? How does this change the novel?

◦Similarly, what did the addition of “traditionally Irish” problems (unemployment, living “on the dole”) change about the novel’s original message? What about the other changes?

◦Are there lines that Doyle crosses in “The Commitments” that are inappropriate to cross while gesturing? What are they? Does the film adaptation cross those same lines (if any)?

◦Considering how we’ve discussed the Black and Green Atlantic to mean thus far in the course, how would “The Deportees” measure up to our definition?
