Creative Imitations and Appropriations:
From Cinematic Adaptations to Re-makes
18-19 February 2011
Sponsored by the Division of Humanities Research Network Film, Media and Literature and the Centre for Research on National Identity, University of Otago, New Zealand
The topic of adaptation has gained renewed attention and relevance in the last ten years especially due to the constantly changing landscape of film and media technology. The recent shift from analogue to digital technology has inspired heated debates about the nature of cinema, and the relations between textual and visual narratives, while promoting re-conceptualizations of media specificity as far as both practices of production and consumption (forms and experiences of viewing) are concerned.
In response to these debates, presentations will address the issue of cinematic adaptation broadly defined, including phenomena such as the remake, imitation and re-mediation, reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the topic.
