MEDIA JOURNEYS 2019
JAFP: Looking back, stepping forward
A symposium in celebration of the first decade
of the Journal of Adaptation in Film & Performance (Intellect)
University of East Anglia
Monday 15 July 2019
Adaptation, a concept that may be perceived to encompass a range of reworkings across and within media, allows us to interrogate creative and critical relationships between texts of different modalities, genres and styles. The ‘media journeys’ of adaptation continue to make the field and its multifarious processes exciting, urgent and evolving.
This symposium, which is organised to celebrate the conclusion of the first decade of the Journal of Adaptation in Film & Performance – and the dynamic beginning of its second decade – welcomes proposals from scholars and reflective practitioners (creative artists across all performance media as well as archivists engaged with adaptations and translations in stage, screen or otherwise mediatic performance) at all stages of a professional career (academic or extramural to academia).
Abstracts are invited for twenty-minute papers or alternative delivery formats (including workshops, poster presentations, five-minute papers or practice led formats) on any aspect of adaptation and/or translation in relation to performance media, in the broadest sense of the term.
Topics may include but should not be limited to:
* Adaptation and audience(s); adaptation and interactivity;
* The F word of adaptation studies: can we get away from fidelity?
* Translations, international adaptations, tradaptations; subtitling/dubbing
* Intertextuality, transmedia and other theoretical models for adaptation
* Canonical sources, canonical adaptations; historical fiction
* Adaptation and the archive
* Adaptation and genre
* Adaptation and gender
* Adaptation and interpretation; adaptation and creativity
* Adaptation and law; adaptation and community
* Adaptation and science; adaptation and the environment
