CFP of the conference: The Literary Image and the Screen. Proposals from PhD and early career researchers welcomed.
WHEN / WHERE
Department of Modern Languages and Cultures, University of Genoa (Italy), 5-6 September 2019.
This conference aims to explore the connections and relationships between literature and the screen, from the pre-cinematic age to the era of television and new digital technologies. A cross-media approach, aimed at understanding the reciprocal influences between these various artistic forms, as seen from the point of view of techniques of representation, theoretical exchanges and the circulation of works, will shed new light on ideas in, and theories of, both literature and the cinema.
The official language of the conference is English.
Keynote speakers: Prof Laura Marcus and Prof Nikolaj Lübecker, University of Oxford.
This will be the opening event of a series co-organised by the University of Genoa and the University of Oxford.

Proposals should include your name, university affiliation (if applicable), academic status, and the title of your paper. Papers should not exceed 20 minutes.
The deadline for abstract submissions has been extended to 30th June 2019. Notification of acceptance will be communicated on 15th July 2019.
