This panel seeks papers about film adaptations of medieval and Renaissance English drama, both in English-speaking countries and around the world. Papers might compare different adaptations of the same play, discuss problems associated with the notion of fidelity to text or of relocating a play in a different historical or cultural milieu, or consider the effectiveness for use in scholarly work or in the classroom. We seek investigation of continuities across disciplines: medieval/Renaissance, cinema studies/literature. What is at stake in these adaptations? What do these directors, writers, performers, and audiences bring to the table?

The Digital Americanist Society seeks speakers who will articulate a clear, interpretive intervention that digital scholarship has made (or could make) in their areas of study. Our goal will not be to describe digital projects, but instead to demonstrate how those projects advance, supplement, or disrupt the scholarly conversations of our respective literary subfields. We encourage "non-DH" scholars whose work has benefited from DH scholarship to contribute. Submit abstracts to Ryan Cordell, Northeastern University, email@example.com, by September 30, 2012. Please note: the session has already been accepted to the conference, so accepted papers will be included in the program.
