This panel will celebrate the past and continuing inspiration of Southern literature on Hollywood film. In Film Adaptation and its Discontents, Thomas Leitch declares the "primary lesson of film adaptation" is "texts remain alive only to the extent that they can be rewritten and that to experience a text in all of its power requires each reader to rewrite it." He recommends that scholars concentrate on how a given adaptation "reads" its source text along with any "literary, cinematic, or broadly cultural" intertexts contained within rather than narrowly focusing on the issue of fidelity.
The Centre for Early Modern Studies at the University of Sussex is to host a multi-disciplinary postgraduate conference on News in Early Modern Europe in June 2012. We invite proposals for individual papers of 20 minutes or panels of up to three speakers that address any aspect of this theme. Although the conference is particularly directed towards postgraduates, we welcome scholars at all levels of their career.
Plenary speakers include: Joad Raymond (University of East Anglia), Andrew Pettegree (University of St Andrews).
