Abstract submissions invited - please submit and circulate widely!Concept, Gaze, Execution: Women Artists Interpret Male Subjects and Authors (Seminar)51st Annual NeMLA Convention: March 5-8, 2020 (Boston, MA) deadline for submissions: September 30, 2019 This session seeks to stage a conversation about the idea of adaptation, with a focus on how women writers and directors script performative interpretations of male subjects or texts by male authors. Papers can look at Shakespeare restaged by women playwrights and directors, modes of engagement, the continued debate about originality versus adaptation versus appropriation, the impact of contexts and audiences, or the hybridity of transcultural adaptations. When Snapchat demands images that appear and disappear, do our theories regarding adaptation need to be reshaped? Or can they ‘travel’ in time as Said theorized for space and place? Full panel description below and at this link:
