April 7-11, 2010 Textual Refigurations: Examining the Practice of Rewriting Old Texts into New Contexts. A 2010 NeMLA panel
This panel will examine the practice of importing characters and plot lines from one literary work to another. This panel hopes to reveal how the relationship between the newer work and its source material affects the way the way that readers and audiences receive both works, particularly when this relationship crosses cultural, chronological, and genre divides. Please send abstracts to Michael Rio and William Duffy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
