Critical attention to adaptations has traditionally privileged film transcodifications of literary works.
However, the latter have been generally dismissed through the filter of a “morally loaded rhetoric
of fidelity and infidelity” (Hutcheon [2006] 2013, 31). Limited in extent and epistemic potential,
this approach needs to be overcome through the adoption of a more inclusive, open and fluid view,
concerned with the circular process of story(re)telling inherent in adaptation(s), and encompassing
endless interpretation, appropriation and creation.
In this vein, the Italian Association of Canadian Studies is pleased to announce its interdisciplinary conference
on Adaptation of Stories and Stories of Adaptation: Media, Modes and Codes.
Scholars in Canadian studies from a range of disciplines, such as, literature, linguistics, history,
geography, architecture, will be invited to critically share and discuss the fluid, complex adaptation
of stories, across media, modes and codes, as well as across genres, cultures and ages.
Against this backdrop, Canada might differently express the context of origin, interpretation and circulation of stories.
Participants may address several genres (radio, TV, film adaptations, stage plays, opera, ballets, videogames,
art and architectural monuments, nature-park rides, among others), as carrying intertextual relations with other texts,
and as differently engaging audiences.

They may also explore multifold and multifaceted stories of adaptation, in their historical, socio-cultural, economic and legal dynamics.
We invite original contributions in this field of inquiry, in the form of theoretical speculations,
methodological discussions, case-study illustrations within several areas of interest, including but
not limited to:

• adaptation as story(re)telling
• forms of engagement and adaptation
• TV, film and theatre adaptations
• new media adaptations
• experiences of/as adaptation
• adaptation and (intra/inter-linguistic) translation
• stories of adaptation in Canada: legal issues
• diachronic perspectives over adaptation
• Canadian identity, culture, and society and adaptation(s)
• Canadian geography and history and adaptation(s)

Keynote speeker: Prof. Emerita Linda Hutcheon (University of Toronto).

Participants should be AISC members. Conference fee: 70 €.
A selection of papers will be peer-reviewed for publication.
