The Italian and Mediterranean Colloquium
Italian Department & European Institute, Columbia University
October 18, 6 pm, Hamilton 501
Emilio Cocco (Università degli studi di Teramo, Italy-American University of Rome)
This panel seeks papers that explore adaptations from comics into theater, or from theater into comics. Whether comics adaptations of classic plays, or celebrated graphic narratives that get adapted for the musical stage, the interplay between the stage and the comics page is rich and multi-directional, as both are visual narratives, with very different points of access and methods of meaning-making.
We are soliciting chapter proposals for an edited volume of scholarship about Frank Herbert's Dune saga. Despite being one of the most well-known and best-selling science fiction novels, there has been surprisingly little scholarship about Dune given its importance to the genre. This collection seeks to awaken interest in academic approaches to the novel. We are looking for works that will enhance our understanding of the original novel, as well as its sequels.
