Paul Morrissey is a key figure of American underground filmmaking. Early in his career he joined Andy Warhol’s Factory and worked on numerous projects, notably the ambitious Chelsea Girls (1966), a 210 minute-long split-screen experiment which became an unexpected crossover hit and raised the profile of New York underground filmmaking.
From Nawal el Saadawi’s writings against FGM to Tunisian protests advocating for changes to inheritance law, this panel considers North Africa’s women writers in conversation with the conference theme, resilience. How have these women writers mediated and negotiated their interconnected position within the Mediterranean zone: between Europe and sub-Saharan Africa and between the Mashreq and Al-Andalus? How have they, to borrow from Hélène Cixous, stolen/flown away with the systems that they worked within, including language systems, genre conventions, and traditional literary markets? What are their roles in decolonization projects, including the assertion of Amazigh rights?

Call for papersAuthenticity and Adaptation: Association of Adaptation Studies Conference
Adaptation studies has contended with the question of hierarchies since it first emerged. Adaptation as a process similarly so: the problem of the source and the ‘original’ has established certain values and positions of texts. This has been challenged most notably through the debate in the field around fidelity, wherein the question of being ‘true’ to the source has been variously deemed fallacious, unhelpful, or both. Despite some recent proponents for it, what emerges from this is the challenging of the hierarchies that the fidelity debate espouses. Broadly, this has been main way in which these hierarchies have been challenged in adaptations, primarily due to the seemingly inescapable status fidelity has in the field.
