CALL FOR PAPERS for possible publication

Film Adaptation

I am seeking papers for a possible publication of
collected essays addressing various concerns of film
adaptation. Possible topics include but are in no way
limited to the following. What problems arise when
adapting a work of literature to a screenplay? How do
various adaptations of the same work use the primary
text differently in their adaptations? What role does
fidelity play in screenplay adaptation? What problems
in auteur/authorship arise in screenplay adaptation?
What role does intended audience play in screenplay
adaptation? Studies of single text adaptations are
also welcome.

CFP: Visual Archives and Embodied Practice

This panel looks to the archive as a motivating device for intervention, rather
than as an inert repository of empirical data. In other words, we're interested
in discussing how archival research becomes embodied in practices, and would
like to reconsider the agents and institutions mediating these embodiments.
