Stage to Screen: Contemporary Playwrights (PAMLA, Deadline 3/31/12)

updated: 
Wednesday, February 1, 2012 - 8:53am
PAMLA: Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association

Papers are sought for an approved PAMLA special session panel: Stage to Screen: Contemporary Playwrights. While much attention has been paid to film versions of Shakespeare, film adaptations of contemporary playwrights' work have received relatively little scholarly notice. This panel will examine stage-to-screen adaptations of post-1950 dramatic works, and the changes wrought upon them by the possibilities and demands—technical, artistic, and commercial—of the different medium. Topics we are interested in include (but are not limited to):
· adaptations across linguistic, national and cultural boundaries.
· the consequences of commercial imperatives, or the "hollywoodization" of artistic works.

Special Issue of *Interdisciplinary Literary Studies* on Contemporary Episodic Televisual Narrative

updated: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2012 - 9:16pm
James M. Decker (Professor of English, Illinois Central College) and Kenneth Womack (Professor of English & Integrative Arts, Penn State Altoona)

Call for Papers: Special Issue of Interdisciplinary Literary Studies: A Journal of Criticism and Theory (www.psupress.org/Journals/jnls_ILS.html)

We invite essays that employ interdisciplinary approaches towards the study of the rise and growing hegemony of contemporary episodic televisual narrative in such texts as Dexter, Mad Men, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Weeds, Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey The Tudors, and Sherlock (BBC), among a wide range of others. We are especially interested in the applications of multidisciplinary frameworks in the analysis of contemporary televisual texts.
