Centre for Adaptations Overview

The Centre for Adaptations at De Montfort University is the hub of the International Association of Adaptation Studies with colleagues in the US, Australia and Europe.  It hosts the international journal, Adaptation (Oxford University Press) and runs annual seminar series and conferences, such as ‘From Theatre to Film – And Back Again!’ (19th February, 2014).  The work of colleagues in the Centre ranges from Shakespeare and film, biopics, theatre adaptations, 20th century drama, ‘bad adaptations’, early 20th century film adaptations and silent cinema.
