WORD AND IMAGE (ASECS, March 30-April 2, 2006)

This panel seeks to investigate the interaction between verbal and visual
languages in the art and literature of eighteenth-century Europe. Approaches
may draw upon such diverse fields as art history and image theory, cultural
studies, literary theory, visual semiotics, book history and print culture.
Some possible topics include: portraits in the text, engraving, illustrated
narratives and cartography, verbal description, and film adaptations of
eighteenth-century works. The objective is to engage in a stimulating dialogue
on the mutual collaboration of these two very rich forms of expression.

Adaptation: The State of the Field, Call for Papers

 

For the 2006 Popular Culture Association (PCA)/American Culture Association (ACA) conference in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, from April 12th to April 15th.

 

Adaptation: The State of the Field

 

It's likely that both literature and film owe a great deal more to the notion of adaptation than practitioners of either discipline are likely to admit. Bakhtin suggested that "European novel prose is born and shaped in the process of a free (that is reformulating) translation of others' works." Literary prose, and perhaps the very idea of literature, he suggests, was developed in an act of adaptation.
