Dr Richard Taws (UCL), Dr Ann Lewis (Birkbeck), and Dr Silke Arnold-de Simine (Birkbeck) will explore the contested but highly productive concept of intermediality, and its relation to ideas of adaptation, through case studies taken across English, French, and German-speaking cultures. Presentations will focus on Eric Rohmer’s film about the French Revolution, L’Anglaise et le duc
(2001), illustrations and film versions of Marivaux’s bestseller La Vie de Marianne
(1731–42) and Nosferatu
, F. W. Murnau’s 1922 screen adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula
(1897). This workshop will analyse different kinds of intermedial encounter, and the rich suggestiveness of this form of representation as a reflection on the possibilities of different media.
