“The new journal, Adaptation and the new Association of Adaptation Studies is a most welcome development in an area that has been for so long under-represented in academic circles. As a practitioner, I find it rather thrilling to be the object of scholarly investigation!”

Andrew Davies - Screenwriter and novelist

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
