MMLA: Re-reading Remakes, Reboots, and Readaptations

Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 9:52am
Marxist Literary Group
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 20, 2019

This permanent section of the Midwestern Modern Languages Association organized by the Marxist Literary Group seeks to examine the economics, politics, and aesthetics of remakes, reboots, and readaptations in film, television, and literature.  In 2019 alone, there are over twenty films being released that are remakes, reboots, or readaptations. These films range from Disney’s live-action remakes of Dumbo, Aladdin, and The Lion King to the second chapter of the readaptation of Stephen King’s IT and a reboot of the Child’s Play franchise. Why are these types of films so popular? More specifically, why is there an increasing market for such films and television shows?

Philip Larkin: Personality, Poetry, Prose *extended deadline*

Philip Larkin: Personality, Poetry, Prose.

13-14 June 2019, Hull History Centre, Hull, UK.

Co-convened by final-year ‘Larkin-focused’ PhD researchers, Rebecca Devine (University of Hull) and Kyra Piperides Jaques (University of York).

The past few years have been particularly exciting for the Larkin scholar. With Hull – the poet’s workplace and home of thirty years – selected as UK City of Culture 2017, this undoubtedly engendered a renewed interest in not only the work of Philip Larkin, but the life of the poet as well. We expect that this will only be amplified by the successive title being handed to Coventry, Larkin’s birthplace and childhood home.
