Most stage adaptations are written by someone other than the author of the source material, but this panel will examine the issues and complexities that arise when an author chooses to transition a work from a narrative into a dramatic form. Given the unique aspects of dramatic writing (the economy of expression, the restrictions of time and space, the immediacy of the action, the reliance on dialogue and movement, etc.), what might motivate an author to adapt his or her fictional work and what does the adaption reveal about the original text (as well as the author)? Papers about contemporary writers are particularly welcomed.

We are seeking essays for an edited collection titled Rethinking Globalization and Spatial Scale. The goal of the volume is to bring together interdisciplinary research on globalization spanning the humanities and social sciences that foregrounds theoretical and methodological conceptualizations of scale—how people, capital, goods, material infrastructure, ideas, and power aggregate along or slide among different degrees or levels of attachment, from personal to local to national to transnational.
