Adaptation studies was originally established with the intent to study  the manner in which cinematic texts altered their literary sources.  However, this concept has since expanded to engage with broader ideas of  how adaptation functions and the manner in which it has come to  interface with not only specific genres of literature, film, theatre,  media, and the digital, but also the narratives that underlie these in a  broader social, political, and historical sense (Raw and Gurr, 2013).  In fact, it is now maintained that the field is broad enough to be  conceptualised as an active determining process that affects almost  every aspect of our lives as we engage with the world around us.

“Culture” is not an object to be described, neither is it a unified corpus of symbols and meanings that can be definitively interpreted. Culture is contested, temporal, and emergent. Representation and explanation—both by insiders and outsiders—is implicated in this emergence.

**CFP for the Society of Cinema and Media Studies (SCMS) 2018 Conference in Toronto**

In an academic setting, weighty or dramatic “adult” films are generally met with intellectual curiosity by students, or at least an acknowledgement that they are “worthy” of consideration. Genre films like horror or action are met with more resistance, but generally students are willing to admit they have some sort of ideological investments. Films aimed at children, however, are often dismissed as just entertainment. Surely we may analyze Bicycle Thieves, but Home Alone? Yes to Goodfellas, no to Goonies.

I International Conference on Research in Multilingualism: Innovation and New Challenges

updated: 
Wednesday, October 4, 2017 - 10:41am
University of Oviedo, Spain
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, October 18, 2017

The expansion of bilingual and multilingual education in an increasingly globalised world involves a series of intrinsic challenges to which both teachers and students respond with changes and innovations – technological, methodological or procedural – with respect to the traditional model of learning-teaching. In parallel with this, it also offers an interesting field of study to undertake research into the learning of a language in all its domains – linguistic,  social, or cultural –  not only from theoretical approaches, but also in order to uncover areas of improvement and good practice.

Investigating Identities in Young Adult (YA) Narratives

Symposium on the 13/12/2017 at The University of Northampton UK

From JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series to Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight, Young Adult (YA) narratives have grown exponentially over the past twenty years. Adopting a range of genres and platforms including the Bildungsroman and the coming of age teen drama, YA narratives represent a significant cultural means to explore the formation of identity in all its varied aspects. This one day symposium at the University of Northampton will investigate the representation of identity constructions in relation to narrative form in YA narratives both past and present.
