In an effort to promote scholarly discourse in all disciplines and fields, the Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference at the University of Washington, Seattle invites graduate students to submit papers addressing notions of adaptation, a concept Dudley Andrew calls, "potentially as far reaching as you like" (Andrew, Concepts in Film Theory, 1984). The appearance of two journals dedicated to adaptation studies in the past two years along with the proliferation of theoretical texts on the subject testify to the ever-increasing reach of the topic.

CFP Affinities #4 – What is Radical Imagination: Horizons beyond "The Crisis"
Edited by Alex Khasnabish and Max Haiven
The social crises of neoliberalism, so evident and provocative throughout the rest of the world, have finally come "home" to the global North in the form of a cataclysmic financial crisis wreaking havoc on the lives of people, workers and communities, intensifying already intolerable injustices and inequalities and justifying the intensification of surveillance, policing and militarization.
This call invites proposals for papers to be presented at the 2010 American Literature Association conference in San Francisco, CA, May 27-30.
In The Psychopathology of Everyday Life, Freud explains that "the border-line between the nervous, normal, and abnormal states is indistinct." Consequently, while phenomena such as forgetting, slips of the tongue, and other "mistakes" are generally seen by society as normal, one could argue that they are in fact the foundation for more menacing psychopathologies like paranoia, schizophrenia, personality disorders, or even homicidal behavior.
Proposals are now being sought for review in the Film Theory Area. Review begins immediately and continues until December 15, 2009. Listed below are some suggestions for possible presentations, but topics not included here are also welcome:
***NOTE: The deadline for submission of abstracts has been extended until 8 February 2010.***
Spanning nearly eight decades, the work of Edward Upward (b.1903, d. February 2009) is without parallel in English letters. Upward's influence on the literature of the 'Auden generation' (from his quasi-Surrealist Mortmere fantasies to his political stories of the thirties) was outstanding; his life-long commitment to the Communist cause made him the moral authority for left-wing writers from the 1930s onwards. At the same time, Upward's own writings have sometimes been eclipsed by the works of the authors he influenced – most notably W.H. Auden and Christopher Isherwood.
