Ludic literature, literary games
British Library Conference Centre |

The transformation of popular literature and children’s literature into giant franchises of book, film and game is a commonplace event in contemporary culture.
It is less common to find similar transformations of canonical literary texts. This one day conference will show how literary treasures such as unique manuscripts in the British Library archive might be re-imagined through drama, film and videogame by students and young people. It will feature game-play, film and drama demonstrations, and talks by academics, educators and curators with different takes on how such transformations happen and what they mean.
This event is an outcome of the AHRC-funded Playing Beowulf: Gaming the Library project, a collaboration between UCL IOE, UCL English, and the British Library
