The Literary Image and The Screen

This conference aims to explore the connections and relationships between literature and the screen, from the pre-cinematic age to the era of television  and new digital technologies. A cross-media approach, aimed at understanding the reciprocal inuences between these  various artistic forms, as seen from the point of view of techniques of representation, theoretical exchanges and the circulation of works, will shed new light on ideas in, and theories of, both literature and the cinema.
