Dr. Rebecca Housel

CFP: Film Adaptation for PCA/ACA conference 11/30/07 (3/19-22/07)
 
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!
 
>From Camera Lens to Critical Lens was published with Cambridge SP in
2006, using papers on everything from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless

critic.
