Организаторы: De Montfort University’s Centre for Adaptations


De Montfort University’s Centre for Adaptations is hosting a one-day conference on medieval and early modern adaptation. We invite proposals for 20-minute papers to discuss the ways in which texts synonymous with the medieval and early modern periods have been reworked or adapted.

It was from the Middle English poem Sir Orfeo that J.R.R Tolkein drew inspiration for his Steward of Gondor and the wandering King, Aragorn, of his Lord of the Rings and it was from the French romances and the influence of anonymous troubadours and minstrels that Geoffrey Chaucer drew out The Wife of Bath’s Tale.  The convoluted history of European monarchs has inspired plays, novels, poems, fairy tales and a recent outpouring of popular medieval and early modern adaptations in novels, film and television, such as Merlin, The Game of Thrones, The Tudors and Wolf Hall. We invite proposals that discuss the adaptation of the medieval and early modern periods in film, television, animation, plays, novels and poetry.
