UPDATE: CALL FOR PAPERS
SHAKESPEARE ADAPTATIONS: ADDITIONS AND OMISSIONS

2006 Southwest/Texas Popular Culture/American Culture Association
27th Annual Conference: Albuquerque, NM

February 8-11, 2006

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
the conference.

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.

Please send an abstract and a brief C.V. by December 1, 2005 to:
