Call for Papers: National Seminar on Fiction and Film - An Interdisciplinary Approach


Dates: 14, 15 and 16 March 2012

Organized by Department of English, Government College for Women, Thiruvananthapuram

In association with the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy

Fiction has inspired films right from the birth of the latter. This has grown into a kind of symbiotic relationship. Cinema, being a pan art, has almost all ingredients of drama such as characters, plot and spectacle. But it is quintessentially a narrative medium. The process of trans-creation from a book into a film, from its printed page into screen, is rather complex. The film maker utilizes a different language - the language of film - to create the story anew. Just as in any translation much variation may occur in this trans-creation as well. What is lost and what is gained could be the result of the peculiarity of the new language adopted. But it could also be a compulsive play of the hegemonic tastes of cinema. It would be interesting to analyse the dynamics behind the manifestation of such hegemony on screen.

The proposed seminar will give an interdisciplinary approach to the difficult aspects of the process evolved in turning a literary text into a film and its importance as a pedagogical tool.

Call for papers

Papers on the theme of the conference are invited.
