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

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.
