Transcending the literature/film paradigm of typical film adaptation courses, these essays focus on the idea of 'adaptation' and what it means in different socio-political contexts. This volume not only suggests how 'adaptation' might be used in different disciplines but how it might improve the learning experience for teachers and students alike.
