The Northern Plains Conference on Early British Literature (NPCEBL) attracts advanced scholars, graduate students, and select undergraduates from the upper Midwest (and farther) to discuss pedagogical, theoretical, and literary-critical issues concerning the early literatures of the British isles. We also welcome discussions grounded in early literatures that cross cultural, period and disciplinary boundaries.
The NPCEBL invites proposals of up to 500 words for presentations or panel discussions. Please send these to the conference organizers electronically or by mail.

This panel will celebrate the past and continuing inspiration of Southern literature on Hollywood film. In Film Adaptation and its Discontents, Thomas Leitch declares the "primary lesson of film adaptation" is "texts remain alive only to the extent that they can be rewritten and that to experience a text in all of its power requires each reader to rewrite it." He recommends that scholars concentrate on how a given adaptation "reads" its source text along with any "literary, cinematic, or broadly cultural" intertexts contained within rather than narrowly focusing on the issue of fidelity.
