The Centre for Adaptations


The Centre for Adaptations brings together academics from Drama, English, Film Studies and New Media.

It hosts the journal, Adaptation (Oxford University Press) and the book series, Screen Adaptations (Methuen and Norton). The Centre organises workshops across universities in Europe and North America, offers lectures during an annual cultural events week, and manages the annual Association of Literature on Screen Studies conference, which has taken place in Leicester, Atlanta, Amsterdam, London, Berlin and Istanbul.

The adaptation-orientated Humanities MA is offered through the Centre at De Montfort University.

The Director for the Centre for Adaptations is currently Professor Deborah Cartmell.
