In particular, the rise of two methodological paradigms, TRANSNATIONALISM and PRINT CULTURE STUDIES, have paved the way for exciting new approaches to key questions that have always been at the heart of the discipline: the relationship between literature and nationhood, the role of writing in international circuits of knowledge and commodity exchange, and the artistic labour of the author.

Nine of the ten highest-grossing Hollywood movies of 2014 were based on creative properties from children's and youth culture, including comic books, novels, and toys. In line with this year's theme of In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts, I welcome papers that examine adaptation, compare media (broadly defined), and/or explore transmedia storytelling. While papers on recent adaptations are particularly encouraged, this panel seeks a variety of new, productive perspectives on adapting children's and youth culture for various media, including film, television, and online media.
