Department of English, Gauhati University

Margins, an international peer-reviewed journal, is published annually in summer by the Department of English, Gauhati University. It offers a space for the exploration of the marginal in its theoretical implications and in literature and culture. It welcomes examination of the historical and the contemporary through interdisciplinary perspectives – looking at texts in both their wider conceptual and immediate situational significance. It has a special interest in the retrieval of texts and authors who have been invisible in mainstream disciplinary concerns but are considered significant in their respective locations and are presented convincingly.

Filming this Insubstantial Pageant: Medieval and Renaissance Drama on Film

updated: 
Tuesday, June 26, 2012 - 7:36am
Northeast Modern Language Association

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?
