In holding this year’s conference in downtown Portland, one of the most environmentally conscious cities in the United States, we invite attendees to consider the themes of “repurpose” and “recycle,” broadly conceived. What function—socially, politically, and economically—do sequels, remakes, and reboots serve in media culture? How do reboots and remakes allow creators and audiences to not only revisit, but reimagine familiar narratives? What historical precedents might we return to in our attempts to better understand the nature and influence of series, serials, and (trans)media franchises today? And how might adaptation studies play a vital role in these critical discussions? While we welcome papers on any aspect of adaptation studies, we are especially interested in presentations that address one or more of the following concerns (or similar topics):

•        transmedia storytelling

•        media franchising

•        recombinant culture

•        questions of authorship in adaptation

•        film genres and genre cycles

•        economic and industrial perspectives on remakes

•        rebooting television series

•        evaluating sequels, remakes, and reboots

•        the question of originality and artistry in adaptation

•        environmental media and ecocritical perspectives

•        ecocinema and ecomedia

•        media and the anthropocene

•        historical precedents in series, serial, and franchise storytelling

•        formalist and narratological approaches to series, serial, and franchise storytelling

•        narrative extensions into new media, including video games

•        the impact of #OscarsSoWhite and #MeToo on reimagining adaptation

•        teaching adaptation

The LFA also welcomes work in media studies, more broadly. We have significant interest in broader studies of American and international cinema, film and technology, television, new media, and other cultural or political issues connected to the moving image. In addition to academic papers, presentation proposals about pedagogy or from creative writers, artists, and filmmakers are also welcome.
