Filming the Nineteenth Century Novel (NeMLA, March 2012)
Papers addressing filmed adaptations of 19th century novels are invited, from all theoretical perspectives. Books and films both major and less conventional are welcome. What choices confront film-makers in bringing these works to the screen? What features of the novels make them appealing to producers/directors/the public? What effect do modernizations of the texts have on their meaning? How are they used to comment on contemporary culture and society?
300-word abstracts to Rod Cooke, firstname.lastname@example.org 'Filming the Nineteenth Century Novel' has been approved as a session at the 43rd annual NeMLA convention, to be held in Rochester, New York, March 15th-18th, 2012.
