Centre for Adaptations 

The international Centre for Adaptations brings together academics from Drama, English, History, Film Studies and New Media.

It hosts the journal, Adaptation (Oxford University Press) and the book series, Screen Adaptations (Methuen and Norton), organises workshops across universities in Europe and America, offers lectures during an annual cultural events week, and is home of the Association of Adaptation Studies which manages annual conferences (which have taken place in Leicester, Atlanta, Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Istanbul, London and Oxford).

It collaborates with Honorary Professor, Andrew Davies, who donated his rich and extensive archive to the Centre in 2015.

The Director of the Centre for Adaptations is Professor Deborah Cartmell.

“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
