115th Annual Conference - Honolulu, Hawaii
Friday, November 10 - Sunday, November 12, 2017

Adaptation Studies

Presiding Officer: 
Lindsay Schaffer, University of California, Riverside

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 "The Sense of Sight: Visuality, Visibility, and Ways of Seeing" are especially welcome.
