Film Adaptation is the movie medium that reshapes myth, medicine,
monsters, music, magic, mummies, Marvel comics, and much, much more!
Alliteration aside (sorry), film adaptation is any movie adapted to
screen to portray everything from history and politics to Frank Miller's
Sin City and 300. There's whole sets of Shakespearean adaptations. Even
DC and Marvel comics! Heck, we could write an entire book on film
adaptation--hey, wait...we did!

Justice and the Big Bad Man: Perspectives on Individual Responsibility

“We the People” take for granted the role of the government to provide
certain servicesâ€"administration, protection, securityâ€"in a fair and
impartial manner. Yet the impartiality of any given system of government
is often compromised. Oppression can be passive, due to red tape and
forms in triplicate that delay or deny justice, or aggressive, when
individuals within the system seek selfish rather than communal benefits.
When the system fails, what responsibilities can, should, and/or must the
individual assume?

not just in the traditional sense of form (poetry, drama, and prose, or
tragedy, comedy, and melodrama), but also more broadly construed in terms
of media conventions (Hollywood films, graphic novels, and oral
testimonies). How do these traditional and contemporary storytelling
practices shape (positively or negatively) the story, the storyteller and
the audience? How have various authors or media sought to influence

39th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

Cinematic approaches to spontaneous individual creativity. How does cinema
inflect or challenge the link between artist and object? How have films
addressed the constitution of creative acts? How have they balanced the
diverse factors that make claims on the essence of creation in the western
tradition, including personal expression, aesthetics, medial specificity,
and ideology? Essays on Cocteau's Orphic Trilogy are especially encouraged,
but any essay on creation in cinema is welcome. 250-500 word abstracts by

For the upcoming essay collection "Writing (and) the Digital Generation"
(under contract with McFarland), I am soliciting contributions that analyze
the many facets of participatory digital entertainment. The key assumption
of this project is that, contrary to the claim that “no one reads anymore,”
a vast “Digital Generation” actually engages in more rhetorical activity
than perhaps any before. This collection seeks essays that describe and
document these participatory activities and how they are changing how we
see writing, perhaps permanently.
