Conference theme: “Acting, Roles, and Stages”

Proposal Due Date: May 30, 2018 - submit via PAMLA website, http://pamla.org/2018/topic-areas
Adaptation Studies is a growing field of research that addresses a significant subset of the intersection of film and literature in which, as Maureen Quinn puts it, literature and film are studied as "two interdependent partial texts that become a new whole." This session invites papers that explore the many facets of adaptation studies, including literature adapted to film, film to video games, and film to textual works. Papers that engage some aspect of the conference theme of "Acting, Roles, Stages" are especially welcome.
Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. We look forward to your submission.
Note: The PAMLA Conference, held over the November 9-11, 2018 weekend at lovely Western Washington University in idyllic Bellingham, Washington, is a broad conference for scholars of a wide variety of literary, cultural, or media topics. There are over 125 approved sessions you could consider proposing to. You may submit to more than one session (if you do so, please let the presiding officers know you are doing so) but may only deliver one paper at the conference itself.
Please do not submit proposals to more than two or three sessions, and do not submit the same proposal to multiple sessions.
