2015 Symposium on Medieval and Renaissance Studies - Panel on Literature Adaptations: Remixing and Upcycling

Dear early modern scholars,

In conjunction with fellow graduate student Tara Chambers from the University of Saskatchewan, I am organizing a panel on adaptations of Medieval and Renaissance literature to be presented at the Third Annual Symposium on Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Saint Louis University in June 2015.

For the past two years, the SMRS has hosted panels and roundtables on topics in a variety of disciplines. There have been tours of the St. Louis Art Museum and the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, and the university's extensive library collections have also been made available to conference participants for research.  The website for the symposium can be found at

Our panel seeks submissions that discuss adaptations, "remixes," or "upcycles" of Medieval and Early Modern literature on stage, in film, or in text, and how such adaptations reinvent, refashion, and/or reform the source material for twentieth- and twenty-first-century audiences. 

Questions and submissions should be directed to myself at and Tara Chambers at by December 15.

Please see the attached .pdf for more information.
