Defining, Producing, Performing, Consuming, and Theorizing Serials and Adaptations

A Zoom Symposium, September 23–24, 2021

Organizers: Julie Grossman (Le Moyne College), Thomas Leitch (University of Delaware),

Iain Robert Smith (King’s College), Constantine Verevis (Monash University)

This two-day Zoom symposium, hosted by the University of Delaware, seeks to bring scholars of adaptation and seriality into an open conversation with one another, not by recommending a single master set of terms or procedures for adaptation and seriality, still less by seeking to absorb either one of them into the other, but rather by raising questions of common concern to both fields and encouraging practitioners in both to share their views and facilitate collaboration.

The symposium will feature four x 75-minute roundtables, held between 4:00pm and 7:00pm GMT over two days, September 23–24, 2021.

Each roundtable will begin with brief presentations of 5-7 minutes by scholars of seriality and adaptation, followed by a discussion in which panelists and attendees are invited to participate.
