We are actively seeking paper submissions for a one-day international workshop, FAR RAINBOWS: Russian and Soviet Science Fiction On Screen, which will take place at Wadham College, Oxford University on April 12, 2013 (Cosmonauts’ Day!).
Papers of approx. 20 mns’ length are encouraged on any aspect of the adaptation of Russian and Soviet science fiction for cinema, television, and other media. The organisers are particularly interested in studies of how the Strugatskii brothers’ novels have been adapted for the screen, although papers on adaptations of fiction by other authors will also be welcomed. Confirmed speakers include Professor Yvonne Howell (Richmond), Henriette Cederlöf (Stockholm), Dr Andrei Rogatchevski (Glasgow), Professor Sofya Khagi (Michigan), Dr Muireann Maguire (Oxford) and Dr Matthias Schwartz (Berlin).
Please contact Muireann Maguire (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or Andrei Rogatchevski (Andrei.Rogatchevski@glasgow.ac.uk) with any queries, or try our conference email address: email@example.com
Closing date for submission of abstracts: 15 December 2012
