Panel: Oops, They Did It Again: Investigating the Hollywood Remake
Chair: Nina K. Martin, Emory University
SCMS Conference, Vancouver 2006

This panel will investigate the Hollywood remake in a few of its many forms,
whether looking at creative adaptation (Bridget Jones's Diary as remake of
Pride and Prejudice), television transformation (the recent Bewitched), films
that come back to haunt us (such as the remake of The Haunting, or the Quiet
American), or national genre cinema (Japanese horror cinema remakes). Hollywood
remakes raise important questions about historical and cultural contexts,
industrial/marketing practices, fan cultures, and national identities. Papers
dealing with gender and sexuality are especially encouraged.

Please send a 200-300 word abstract and contact information by August 14, 2005
