This talk grows out of Dr Cormac Newark’s three-year Leverhulme Trust-funded project on the screen adaptations of the 1909-10 novel The Phantom of the Opera.
Drawing on examples from crossover, mash-ups and internet fandom, it asks what the global ‘Phantom on Film’ phenomenon tells us about the changing nature of cultural consumption since the first phantom film 100 years ago.
Presented by Dr Cormac Newark, Head of Research at the Guildhall School.
