In a 2015 essay in Transformative Works and Cultures, Rebecca Wanzo calls for “a new genealogy of fan studies” to begin to remedy the systemic oversight of race in fan studies.

Adaptation, in its various forms and mediums, is, according to Linda Hutcheon, often viewed as “minor and subsidiary and certainly never as good as the ‘original.'” At a base understanding, audiences understand adaptation as the process or product of change. Adaptation theory proposes that the many facets of adaptation, such as adoption, translation, shifting, modeling, and even appropriation, are complicated processes and products not easily defined.
