Submissions are invited for a special issue of Adaptation; ‘Adaptations and History’.

These might include:

  • the history of adaptations
  • adapting history
  • biopics and adaptations
  • adaptation as historical appropriation
  • adaptations and period drama or heritage adaptations.

The recent Association of Adaptation Studies conference on this theme - held at St. Anne’s College, Oxford in September 2016 – highlighted the great diversity of work being pursued by scholars examining the many ways in which these key terms intersect across the media landscape. We look forward to a special issue that will bring together the most exciting and innovative ideas in this dynamic convergence of fields. The special issue will be guest edited by Jeremy Strong, Professor of Literature and Film, University of West London.
