CALL FOR ESSAYS
REEL WORLDS OF BEOWULF: REPRESENTATIONS OF BEOWULFIANA ON ELECTRONIC MULTIMEDIA
ORGANIZED BY THE SOCIETY FOR THE STUDY OF POPULAR CULTURE AND THE MIDDLE AGES
PROPOSALS BY 9/1/08

The Beowulf story has a long (though neglected) history on film and television, beginning with a
broadcast in the 1960s on the BBC’s Jackanory. For this collection, we are interested in
expanding knowledge about these filmic retellings and adaptations of Beowulf. We would be
especially delighted to consider discussions of material in video and computer games and of
productions created outside of North America. Please submit proposals by 1 September 2008;
we anticipate that completed papers will be due by 1 May 2009.

By 1 September 2008, please submit full contact information (name, address, phone/cell, and
email), titles, c.v., and abstracts of 300-500 words to the organizers. Address all inquiries and
proposals to the organizers at the following address:
