The full programme for Adaptation and the Novel can now be found on the website: http://adaptationskeele.wordpress.com/programme/

With plenary lectures by Rachel Carroll (Teeside University) and Sarah Wootton (Durham University), this conference seeks to question the processes behind adapting the novel. Are novels tainted or legitimated in the process of adaptation? What aesthetic challenges and opportunities does the transition of a story from one genre to another present? And in what cultural, commercial, and artistic contexts have processes of adaptation and appropriation taken place?

Registration will remain open until Friday 1 November 2013. All forms and payment should be sent to j.e.taylor@keele.ac.uk. Further details can be found on the website: http://adaptationskeele.wordpress.com/
