The journal English Literature: Theories, Interpretations, Contexts, published at the University of Venice Ca’ Foscari, invites scholars to send article proposals on the topic of “Literature and cinema: the dynamics of a complex and fruitful relationship”. We’ll be happy to consider essays on all aspects of the relationship between English literature/American literature/Literatures in English and cinema, both from theoretical perspectives (for instance: adaptation; translation of codes; fidelity-transposition issues; transcultural issues; etc.) and as applied criticism (specific film adaptations of literary works; collaboration between writers and directors; screenplaying; directors’ use of, or relationship with, literary works; literary authors or works inspired by cinema; etc.) for their publication in the December 2018 issue of the journal.
The deadline for sending your article proposal is July 10th, 2018.
The journal will also consider proposals on other topics related to English literature and the literatures in the English language.
