NeMLA 2013

The Originality of Adaptation and Novelization

This panel studies how adaptations of literature into film, and novelizations of film into literature, stress their originality. How do such derivative works manage their break with their sources while not alienating their audience?

Marketing and reception studies of adaptations / novelizations are welcome, as are papers on works only re-using characters or loosely borrowing from sources in other media.

Please send 250 word abstracts to Ana Oancea ( by Sept. 30, 2012.

This panel has been approved for the 2013 NeMLA Convention. It is listed in areas: Cultural Studies and Film; Theory and Literary Criticism.

The Convention will be held in Boston, MA, March 21-24, 2013.
