Centre for Adaptations
The international Centre for Adaptations brings together academics from Drama, English, Film Studies and New Media.
It hosts the journal, Adaptation (Oxford University Press) and the book series, Screen Adaptations (Methuen and Norton), organises workshops across universities in Europe and America, offers lectures during an annual cultural events week, and manages the annual Association of Adaptation Studies conference (which has taken place in Leicester, Atlanta, Amsterdam, London, Berlin and Istanbul).
The MA by Independent Study is offered through the Centre which also recruits students for the PhD / MPhil / MA by Research degrees.
The Director of the Centre for Adaptations is currently Dr Deborah Cartmell.
“The new journal, Adaptation and the new Association of Adaptation Studies is a most welcome development in an area that has been for so long under-represented in academic circles. As a practitioner, I find it rather thrilling to be the object of scholarly investigation!" - Andrew Davies - Screenwriter and novelist.
A Companion to Literature, Film and Adaptation (2012), edited by Deborah Cartmell includes chapters by Deborah Cartmell, Yvonne Griggs, James Russell and Imelda Whelehan.
