Adaptation and Film (Popular Culture Session I
SAMLA Conference
November 8-10, 2013

So many recent films are adaptations. This is a general call for papers considering the adaptations of works into film (such as Hunger Games, Wizard of Oz, World War Z, The Perks of Being a Wall Flower, The Host, etc.) or from one culture to another (such as Being Human, Life on Mars, etc.). This panel is open to the discussion and analysis of the process of adaptation, the way in which works are changed meaning gained and lost, and other aspects of adapting works into film or discussion of that process to make a particular film.

Please send an abstract of 250-500 words and short bio (250 words) by May 31st, 2013 to Shane Trayers at trayers.shane@gmail.com . The 85th annual SAMLA conference will be held November 8-10, 2013 in Atlanta, GA at the Marriott Atlanta Buckhead Hotel.
