(UPDATE)Beyond Adaptation: Appropriations, Allusions and Intertextuality One-Day Postgraduate Symposium Thusrday 27th January 20

updated: 
Thursday, November 18, 2010 - 9:01am
De Montfort University, Leicester, England

As the field of adaptation studies progresses away from questions of 'infidelity' and the 'betrayal' of source material, a new set of disciplines and theories have emerged to help us understand the relationship between texts. It is now understood that artistic works are not single entities created independently of culture, but can be understood as an amalgamation of influences, allusions, and borrowings from previous texts. This intertextual model for the mapping of texts and their influences provokes questions about the very nature of adaptation. What is adaptation, and how does it differ from intertextuality? Do boundaries between texts exist? How have multiplicity and intertextuality altered perceptions of storytelling across mediums?
