SHAKESPEARE ADAPTATIONS: ADDITIONS AND OMISSIONS

PROPOSAL DEADLINE: The deadline is extended until December 1, 2005.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: December 31, 2005
Proposals are being accepted for a panel entitled "Shakespeare Adaptations:
Additions and Omissions" in the Shakespeare on Film and Television Area of
In 1929, Sam Taylor inserted one small credit line into his film adaptation
THE TAMING OF THE SHREW: "With additional dialogue by Sam Taylor." Despite
the controversy that surrounded Taylor's little addendum, film directors
have continued to add--as well as omit--dialogue, characters, plots, and
themes in their cinematic interpretations of Shakespeare's works. While
these additions and omissions are now considered "normal" or "necessary,"
how though do they affect the narrative? What are we getting and/or missing
because of these directorial decisions? How do these embellishments and/or
exclusions challenge the notion that the adaptation is still somehow
"Shakespearean"? This panel will consider such questions.
