>From Robert Zemeckis’s recasting of Grendel's mother in his recent
adaptation of Beowulf to Jane Smiley’s re-imagining of King Lears's
Goneril and Regan in A Thousand Acres to Jean Rhys’s reconsideration of
Charlotte Brontë’s Bertha Mason in Wide Sargasso Sea, authors have re-
envisioned previously created female characters. This panel seeks papers
that address such adaptations or rewritings of women, from medieval to
contemporary literature and film. Please send 200-word abstracts by
April 15 to Laura.Vorachek_at_notes.udayton.edu.

The 50th Annual M/MLA Convention will be held Nov. 13-16, 2008, at the
Marriott Minneapolis City Center Hotel in Minneapolis, MN. Please see
