    In the cinematic history, there are many great film adaptations creating the transnational dialogues. The filmmakers have adapted the foreign novels into their films. They would like to borrow the ideas from those novels to solve the issues of their nation.

    In Japan, Kurosawa Akira adapted Hamlet by Shakespeare into Ran, Macbeth into Throne of Blood, and The idiot by Dostoevsky into the Idiot and so on. In India, Saawariya (2007) was adapted from Dostoevsky’s 1848 White Nights, Aisha (2010) was adapted from Jane Austen’s Emma, Lootera (2013) was adapted from O. Henry’s The Last Leaf. In Malaysia, William Shakespeare's Othello was adapted into Jarum Halus (2008). In Thailand, Shakespeare Must Die (2012) was based on the Macbeth by William Shakespeare. In China, The Night Banquet (2006) was based on Hamlet.

    If you are interested in this topic, please send the title of your proposed paper, a 250-word abstract, your affiliation information to Le-Na Dao (lenadao@hcmussh.edu.vn)
    Thank you.
