Adaptation and the Australian Novel

Virtual Symposium 2021

Landmark Australian novels are being adapted for the stage and screen at a rate we’ve not seen for many decades. Why the rush on Australian adaptation now? What’s fuelling the appetite for this locally themed work and how is it being distributed? Whose stories are being canonised? What version of Australian national identity becomes enshrined in this process, and whose perspectives are elided or omitted? To explore this trend, the Centre for Critical and Creative Writing is pleased to present a virtual symposium – Adaptation and the Australian Novel. Guests can register for sessions below, we look forward to hosting you in 2021. 

Tuesday 6 April – Wednesday 7 April  2021
