CFP: NeMLA 2019 panel

Washington, DC: March 21-24, 2019 (deadline 9/30/18)

The boom in contemporary scholarship on transmedia storytelling, media convergence, and narrative remediation has largely focused on the interactions between old and new media modes in our digital age. But to what extent have literary narratives exhibited similarly transformative cross-media/cross-genre exchanges during earlier periods in media history? This panel examines how literary fiction was adapted, remediated, and remixed by popular media and performance platforms during the mass culture explosion of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
