Quick Overview

Edited by Bernadette Cronin, Rachel Magshamhrain, and Nikolai Preuschoff

This book examines the processes of adaptation across a number of intriguing case studies and media. Turning its attention from the ‘what’ to the ‘how’ of adaptation, it serves to re-situate the discourse of adaptation studies, moving away from the hypotheses that used to haunt it, such as fidelity, to questions of how texts, authors and other creative practitioners (always understood as a plurality) engage in dialogue with one another across cultures, media, languages, genders and time itself. With fifteen chapters across fields including fine art and theory, drama and theatre, and television, this interdisciplinary volume considers adaptation across the creative and performance arts, with a single focus on the collaborative.
