Aims and Scope
Adaptation and translation in the form of the conversion of oral, historical or fictional narratives into stage drama have been common practices for centuries. In our own time the processes of crossgeneric and cross-cultural transformation continue to be extremely important in theatre as well as in the film and other media industries. Adaptation and the related areas of translation and intertextuality continue to have a central place in our culture and profound resonance across our civilizations. As an academic discipline, adaptation studies has begun to establish itself in the last few decades as an important area of scholarship and research which – alongside translation studies – continues to make significant contributions to our analysis and understanding of a complex and increasingly diverse world culture. The aim of this journal is to offer a forum for discussion and analysis of adaptation and/or translation in performance and as creative practice in the context of the following media: theatre, film and television, radio and audio, music, dance, opera, gaming and graphic narratives.
