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.
The conference will take place in the newly refurbished De Montfort University campus in he heart of historic Leicester with opportunities to visit the Richard III Visitor Centre, Leicester City Football Club and the Centre for Adaptations’ Andrew Davies Archive.
