From Amy Heckerling’s 1995 film Clueless to Seth Graham-Smith’s 2016 novel, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (and its many adaptations),and from Sherri Browning Erwin’s 2011 novel Grave Expectations to Thomas Vinterberg’s 2015 film Far from the Madding Crowd, the proliferation of adaptations of nineteenth century texts does not look to abate soon, and scholars have been taking notice. Adaptation offers a new way to consume both nineteenth century culture and canonical texts.

CALL FOR PAPERS 2018
ENGLISH NINETEENTH-CENTURY LITERATURE SESSION
Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association
Conference Dates: October 4-6, 2018
Historians have long recognized the central relationship between property ownership and political participation in Britain. As many have acknowledged, throughout the nineteenth century, men’s ability to vote was based on fulfilling a property qualification; even women’s enfranchisement in 1918 still carried property requirements.
The Review of English Studies is now inviting entries for its 2018 Essay Prize. The RES Essay Prize aims to encourage scholarship amongst postgraduate research students in Britain and abroad. The essay can be on any topic of English literature or the English language from the earliest period to the present.
The winner will receive:
- Publication of the winning essay in the June 2019 issue of The Review of English Studies
- £500 worth of OUP books
- A free year's subscription to The Review of English Studies
Other entries of sufficient quality will also be considered for publication in RES.
