Textual adaptations of traditional literatures have long been written and discussed. Recent incarnations, such as Disney's film The Princess and the Frog (2009) or Michael Buckley's The Sisters Grimm series illustrate our continued fascination with such literatures. Other authors, such as Ryan C. Thomas with The Undead World of Oz or W. Bill Czolgosz and his text Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Zombie Jim, have chosen to dig deep into the tales of the undead to breathe new life into such stories. This panel seeks to explore the transformations such tales have undergone and how such retellings impact the lore regarding such works.

It was as early as 1920, while collecting his famous essays in a book – Vision and Design – that was to exert a huge impact on the Western artistic culture to come, that Roger Fry postulated his famous theory of the importance of form over content in the modern work of art. While form addressed a system of perception that was basically sensorial, content was directed to a "restricted", logical and cognitive system. It was in this context that Fry mentioned with nonchalance a new kind of display aimed at altering the museum system as a whole.

The Women

Thirty years ago, the new fields of Women's Studies and Feminist Criticism looked with interest at the fiction of Henry James. For many, his work offered an exception to the general misogyny of American male writing; for others, the Master's oeuvre was irredeemably patriarchal. Those early studies re-oriented our critical understandings of Henry James. Recent archival, biographical, critical, and creative work have again shifted how we understand James's life and writing and re-opened this topic. The Fall 2010 special issue of the Henry James Review seeks to explore, broadly, how we read James with women in the twenty-first century.

Some possible topics include:
