CALL FOR PROPOSALS, ABSTRACTS, or PANELS
   
  FILM ADAPTATION
   
  2007 NATIONAL POPULAR CULTURE ASSOCIATION/
  AMERICAN CULTURE ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE
   
  BOSTON MARRIOTT COPLEY PLACE
  BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS
   
  APRIL 4-7, 2007
   
  UPDATED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: November 3, 2006
   
  Film adaptation is a wide-ranging genre that crosses
  the borders between music, stage, novels, short stories,
  poetry, biography, autobiography, illness narrative,
  television, science, politics, history, and more, transforming
  those mediums into the world of larger-than-life images
  with booming sound and vibrant color allowing an audience
  to experience the words and momentum of story, adapted
  from any form, in an entirely new, often incredible, way.
   
  Please join us at the April 4-7, 2007, PCA/ACA conference
  in Boston, Massachusetts, at the Boston Marriot Copley Place,
  in the heart of downtown Boston--a city of profound history,
  rich culture, delectable dining, and high-end shopping
  (as well as my hometown--go Red Sox!).
   
  Submit your abstract, individual proposal, or panel proposal
  of 150-200 words, including individual contact information
  and affiliation, to Rebecca Housel, PCA area chair
  for Film Adaptation, by November 3, 2006.
   
  I hesitate to suggest topics, because I don't want to limit you;
  in fact, I encourage and appreciate innovative, intellectually
  lively, and intense creative energy--so if you have a good idea,
  go for it! Many FILM ADAPTATION conference participants
  from the last few years have been published in a volume
  from Cambridge Scholars Press, as well as the Journal of Popular Culture.
   
  Basic topic suggestions (though, again, this is not meant
  to limit proposals in any way):
