The Velvet Light Trap Issue #81: Power, Freedom, and Control in Gaming
The Association of Adaptation Studies 12th Annual Conference, De Montfort University, Leicester, 18-19 September, 2017
The Association of Adaptation Studies Annual Conference will return to its roots in the Centre for Adaptations, De Montfort University, Leicester, where it hosted the Association’s inaugural conference. The focus will be on ‘returns’ and, as Linda Hutcheon has argued, ‘return’ does not necessarily mean ‘regression’. Topics are invited on all aspects of adaptations and those with an emphasis on homecomings, returns, remakes and re-fashioning will be especially welcome.

Our increased attention with new forms of citizenship, changing social landscapes and emergent sets of social relations suggest that Cultural Studies and its analyses of cultural products must rapidly evolve in order to stay relevant. Our visions of the future seem to be replete with fears of new social realities; new media technologies call us to question privacy, location, marginality, the ability to relate meaningfully with others, and the unequal distribution of material wealth. Are Cultural Studies equipped to deal with the theorization of these new realities?
