APRIL 19-20, 1996
MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA
[posted on e-grad; amlit; screen; & amstdy lists]
 
Paper sought to complete a panel for the 1996 NEMLA conference
in Montreal.  Since the final panel must be sent to NEMLA by
15 October, papers or abstracts need to arrive by snail- or e-
mail by 7 October at the absolute latest.
 
SESSION TITLE:   New Technologies of the Moving Image
                 and the Contemporary Novel: Film Into
                 Literature and Literature Into Film
 
PROPOSAL DESCRIPTION:
 
     This panel will focus on the mutual influence of film on
the twentieth-century novel and the novel's influence on film.
While the panel will certainly consider papers using, for
instance, adaptations or novelizations as their primary
investigation, the panel is especially interested in what
Andre Bazin has usefully termed the "cross fertilization" of
the two media: that is, how novelists have adapted filmic
narrative strategies into the special demands of their verbal
medium, and how, in turn, recent film techniques (not only
formal adaptations) display postmodern strategies and themes
developed in prose fiction.  Finally, the panel hopes to use
analyses of the mutual influence of film and the novel to
suggest where both film (and video technology generally) and
the novel might be headed at the millennium's end in the new
world of hypertext fiction and computer-generated "virtual
reality."
