International Conference “Europe and the Colonial Empires of the Sixteenth, Seventeenth and Eighteenth centuries in Literature and Film”
Faculdade de Ciências Humanas e Sociais – Universidade do Algarve
Gambelas Campus – 20 and 21 October 2016
CALL FOR PAPERS
Literature and Film have been working as true time machines. The reappearance of the historical or historically themed novel and the continued popularity of the historical film are evidence of the reader’s and the filmic audience’s interest in these genres, as well as of the huge inspiration that authors and directors find in the historical past.
The dialogue between Literature and Film has been fruitful in recent years, in the field of inter-Arts Studies. The mutual influence regarding the themes and narrative strategies have led to a growing interest for Literature and Film studies in Academia.
In this sense, the Organising Commission of this Conference, constituted by members of FCHS-UAlg, CLEPUL-FLUG and CIAC-UAlg, proposes a debate of scientific nature for specialists and whomever might be interested, to take place in the Faculadade de Ciências Humanas e Sociais of the Universidade do Algarve, Gambelas Campus, in 20 and 21 October 2016.
There will be considered works dealing with the following thematic areas:
1. Literature and Film
1.1. Theory and interdisciplinary dialogue.
2. Historical novel
2.1. The “New Historical Novel” of the twentieth century: problematics, themes and narrative strategies;
2.2. The representation of the historical character and event in the “New Historical Novel”;
2.3. The sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in the “New Historical Novel”.
3. Historical Film

3.2. Authors and directors: adaptations of the historical novel to cinema;
