Literary Adaptations in French, German, and Spanish-Language Contexts

This panel invites contributions that explore the concept of literary adaptation by investigating literary texts, cultural objects, or films originally written or produced in French, German, or Spanish since 1900. Comparative contributions are also welcome.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
--adaptations of literature to film or film to literature
--the re-imagining of classic(al) characters or tropes for twentieth-century or contemporary texts
--the play on previous genres or styles, such as fairytales or the gothic, in twentieth-century or contemporary texts
--literary references in video games
--literary references in twentieth-century or contemporary visual or performing arts
Papers presented as a part of this panel will receive special consideration for publication in the online, open-access, peer-reviewed journal Studies in Twentieth and Twenty-First Century Literature.
Please send proposals of 300 words to Dr. Necia Chronister ([log in to unmask]) by April 12, 2019.
