About the Association


The Association of Adaptation Studies is a group of people drawn from literature and film backgrounds whose aim is to bring together the diverse strands and developments in the field.

The aims of the Association are:

  • To disseminate ideas across disciplines
  • To challenge assumptions concerning the boundaries of literature on screen
  • To increase postgraduate work in the field
  • To support conferences
  • To enlarge the place of teaching of literature on screen within the curriculum

For further information, please visit the Centre for Adaptations (based at De Montfort University, Leicester); or download our Constitution (Word document).

We are also officially listed as a Subject Association on the Council for College and University English.
