ESSAYS ARE STILL BEING ACCEPTED FOR THE FOLLOWING:

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 12/15/09

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 15 December 2009; we anticipate that completed papers will be due by 1 May 2010.

By 15 December 2009, 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:
