Retelling Stories through Literature and Film (NeMLA)

Dear colleagues,

please see our CFP for the NeMLA conference in Hartford, Connecticut (US), March 17-20, 2016.

Retelling Stories through Literature and Film

Retelling a story may be conceived as an act of cultural translation through which authors render established models on the basis of their position in society. We invite submissions of paper proposals exploring the aesthetic and/or political implications of retelling stories across different media and/or cultures.
Panel organizers: Marja Härmänmaa (University of Helsinki, Finland) and Paola Sica (Connecticut College, USA).

Please submit your abstract (300-400 words), a short biographical note and requests for special equipment to the NeMLA website:

http://www.buffalo.edu/nemla.html

The deadline to submit abstracts is September 30, 2015. Please note: we accept papers either in English or Italian. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at marja.harmanmaa@helsinki.fi and psica@conncoll.edu.
