full name / name of organization:
The Literature/Film Association announces that its annual conference
will take place at Towson University, Towson, MD from November 3-5,
2006. Papers are invited from all areas of literature/film studies,
including adaptations and remakes, literature/film theory, history and
film, genre topics, social issues (including race, class, and gender
studies), auteur studies, and individual film analyses.
This year's area of special interest is transnational adaptation--e.g.,
literature, drama, and film from one country that is adapted in another
country (and often in another language). Or, one might explore a
filmmaker working apart from his or her home country, language, and/or
culture--e.g., Ang Lee making Brokeback Mountain in Alberta and Wyoming.
Proposals should be 200-400 words in length. Please submit your
proposals via email (preferred means of transmission) to Peter Lev
(plev_at_towson.edu) with a copy to Greg Faller (faller_at_towson.edu).
Please verify that your email has arrived. If you would rather send a
proposal via US mail, use this address:
Electronic Media and Film
8000 York Road
Towson, MD 21252-0001
The deadline for proposals is August 21, 2006. (Proposers will be
notified of acceptance by September 9, 2006)
