Call for Papers: Cultural Adaptations
PCA 2022 National Conference, PCA Annual Conference
April 13-16, 2022 (Virtual Conference)/Popular Culture Association (PCA)
Our theme for this year focuses on cross-cultural adaptations. Globalization permeates every facet of our lives, and adaptation is certainly a facet of our lives! But more than simple imports, cross-cultural adaptations give us an opportunity to explore ever-shifting notions of national identity, class, history, and many other things. So what’s going on in the Chinese adaptation of Blood Simple, or the Indian adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, or the Japanese version of Unforgiven or the American remake of Oldboy (which was a Korean adaptation of a Japanese manga)? You tell us! Which is to say, we invite papers that consider any and all forms of cross-cultural adaptation.
As always, we consider “adaptation” as much a reading strategy as a way of constructing texts, or as much a way of looking at texts as a particular brand of texts. Thus, beyond the focus of this call, we also welcome papers on any and all aspects of what you read and conceive of as adaptation.
All paper topics will be considered. Please submit an abstract online of no more than 250 words to: http:/www.pcaaca.org
Deadline for proposal submissions is December 5, 2021.
