Lissette Szwydky and Marie Léger-St-Jean are seeking papers to round out a panel entitled “Adapted Materials” that includes presentations on theatrical adaptations and serial novels sold in penny numbers. We wish to convey a historical understanding of adaptation in its numerous forms —including illustration— as a popular and profitable cultural practice.
We will submit the panel to the Nineteenth-Century Studies Association’s conference in Boston, March 26-28, 2015.
Deadline for paper proposals: September 1, 2014
Missed the deadline or can’t make it? We’d still like to hear from all those studying the emergence of a global mass multimedia culture in the form of entertainment industries led by commercial interests, so please get in touch!
