CFP: Adaptation and the Stage in the Nineteenth Century, University of Warwick Saturday 28 March 2015

Call for Papers: Adaptation and the Stage in the Nineteenth Century
A One Day Colloquium
School of Theatre, Performance and Cultural Policy Studies
Millburn House, University of Warwick
Saturday 28 March 2015
10.00 a.m. – 6 .00 p.m

Scholars of the nineteenth century have always been interested in the cultural, economic and aesthetic contexts and practices of adaptation. This Colloquium will draw together scholars working in this inter-disciplinary field, with a focus on the performance cultures of the nineteenth century. The adaptation of fiction, poetry, and painting into plays to feed hungry theatre managers and audiences was an important part of the overall cultural economy of the Victorian period. Adaptation from Victorian novel to film has long been the subject of discussion, debate, and theorisation, while more recently exchanges between visual culture, the novel, and the theatre in the period have gained increasing attention.
Selected papers will be published as a Special Number of Nineteenth Century Theatre and Film, the internationally recognised journal for work on theatre and film of the long nineteenth century.

Please send proposals of 200 words and any other queries to Patricia Smyth p.m.smyth@warwick.ac.uk. Deadline: 28th February 2015.
