Adaptation 4.0: A State of Polymorphia (edited collection)

Call For Papers

In The Oxford Handbook of Adaptation Studies, Thomas Leitch provides a concise account of the history of adaptation studies, dividing it into four periods: The “prehistoric period,” or “Adaptation Studies 0.0,” which culminates with the publication of George Bluestone’s seminal Novels to Film in 1957; “Adaptation Studies 1.0,” which offers the basic principles of adaptation (i.e. Geoffrey Wagner’s and Dudley Andrew’s categorizations) in a series of books that include paradigmatic case studies and ends with Brian McFarlane’s 1996 Novel to Film; “Adaptation Studies 2.0,” which proposes examination of the pop culture arena and offers more sophisticated analytical and evaluative methods and is introduced by Deborah Cartmell and Imelda Whelehan’s 1999 anthology, followed by Robert Stam and Alessandra Raengo’s two books as well as other significant publications; finally, “Adaptation Studies 3.0” is characterized by its embrace “of digital technologies” and its “suspicion of the limits of intertextuality as a methodological framework.”

The proposed collection, for which there is an advanced contract in place with a UP, aims to complement the fifth period of adaptation studies, namely “Adaptation Studies 4.0.” The previous periods have provided us with a wealth of methodologies, theoretical concepts, and sophisticated paradigms of case-studies analyses.

I am currently looking for 2, 3 complete papers that focus on/examine the following topics:

comics and adaptation, graphic novels and adaptation
television adaptations
transnational adaptations
extra-textual parameters (producers’ input, censorship, specific sociopolitical situation) and their influence on the adaptation process
visuality and adaptation
fandom and adaptation
remakes, sequels and adaptation
Other topics can include new theories and methodologies, the history of adaptation, the role of viewers in adaptation reception and data research.

General Information & Important Dates

Complete papers (6-7,000 words, Chicago Manual Style, author-date in-text citations) should be submitted to Betty Kaklamanidou ( by June 10, 2019, along with a brief bio.
All contributions will be subject to editorial evaluation. The submission of an essay does not imply automatic acceptance for the collection.
Additional questions and inquiries may be directed to Betty Kaklamanidou (
