About this book

This book gathers together essays written by leading scholars of adaptation studies to explore the full range of practices and issues currently of concern in the field. The chapters demonstrate how content and messaging are shared across an increasing number of platforms, whose interrelationships have become as intriguing as they are complex. Recognizing that a signature feature of contemporary culture is the convergence of different forms of media, the contributors of this book argue that adaptation studies has emerged as a key discipline that, unlike traditional literary and art criticism, is capable of identifying and analyzing the relations between source texts and adaptations created from them. Adaptation scholars have come to understand that these relations not only play out in individual case histories but are also institutional, and this collection shows how adaptation plays a key role in the functioning of cinema, television, art, and print media. The volume is essential reading for all those interested both in adaptation studies and also in the complex forms of intermediality that define contemporary culture in the 21st century.

Reviews

“At last, here is a collection of lively, practical studies that treat adaptation in a flexible, almost Darwinian sense, showing the many ways in which artistic culture perpetuates, survives, evolves and innovates. The book is also welcome because it embraces such a rich variety of movingimage media.” (James Naremore, author of Charles Burnett: A Cinema of Symbolic Knowledge, 2017)

“If there was any question that adaptation studies is one of the most vibrant intellectual arenas today, this collection leaves no doubt with its lively exploration of new texts, new films, and, most importantly, new critical perspectives and debates.” (Timothy Corrigan, Professor of Cinema and Media Studies, English, and History of Art, The University of Pennsylvania, USA)
