I am welcoming paper proposals for a panel on literary naturalism and film
adaptation for the American Literature Association Symposium on American
Literary Naturalism to be held at the Hyatt Regency in Newport Beach, CA on
October 5-6, 2007.
Topics can include but are not limited to:
--film adaptations of naturalist texts, e.g., Erich von Stroheimâ€™s Greed
(1924 adaptation of Frank Norrisâ€™s McTeague), Michael Curtizâ€™s The Sea
