Shakespeare and Adaptation

December 6, 2022
By News Updates

Shakespeare and Adaptation provides in-depth discussions of a dynamic field and showcases the ways in which, with each act of adaptation, a new Shakespeare is generated. The series addresses the phenomenon of Shakespeare and adaptation in all of its guises and explores how Shakespeare continues as a reference-point in a generically diverse body of representations and forms, including fiction, film, drama, theatre, performance and mass media. Including both sole authored books as well as edited collections, this series embraces a mix of methodologies and espouses a global perspective that brings into conversation adaptations from different nations, languages and cultures.
Series Editor: Mark Thornton Burnett (Queen’s University Belfast, UK).

§ Liberating Shakespeare (June 2023) § Shakespeare’s Histories on Screen (July 2023) § Shakespearean Biofiction on the Contemporary Stage and Screen (November 2023) § Shakespeare, Ecology and Adaptation (2024) §
