Shakespearean [Re]Visions: Adapting the Bard in 21st-Century Visual Culture

Call for proposals for NeMLA 2015 panel

In what ways do twenty-first century adaptations of Shakespeare’s works refashion, reinvent, and comment upon the Bard’s texts? How is Shakespeare transformed through adaptation into visual media? What new insights are revealed about Shakespeare’s works through the art of adaptation in the digital age? This panel seeks proposals that examine interpretations, adaptations, and/or [re]visions of Shakespeare’s works in the twenty first century.

Chair: Mary Ellen Iatropoulos (maryiatrop@gmail.com)
Area: Culture & Media Studies
Cross: Interdisciplinary Humanities

NeMLA 2015 46th Annual Convention
Toronto; April 30-May 3, 2015

Host Institution: Ryerson University

Hotel: Fairmont Royal York

The Northeast Modern Language Association will meet in Toronto, Ontario, for its 46th annual convention. Every year, this event affords NeMLA’s principal opportunity to carry on a tradition of lively research and pedagogical exchange in language and literature. This year’s convention will include roundtable and caucus meetings, workshops, literary readings, film screenings, and guest speakers.

Toronto is Canada’s hub of international arts and culture, known for its diverse culinary scene and multicultural urban vitality. NeMLA convention delegates can explore galleries and museums, shop at historic markets, and discover vibrant international villages—all within a short commute of the convention hotel, the famous Fairmont Royal York, in the heart of downtown Toronto.

The call for session proposals is now closed. The Call for Papers will be available online and in NeMLA’s newsletter in June. Abstract proposals for convention 2015 will be due September 30, 2014.
