Adaptation studies have historically been neglected in both the English and Film Studies curricula. Reflecting on this, Screen Adaptation celebrates its emergence in the late 20th and 21st centuries and explores the varieties of approaches and debates within the field. Examples include J.K.Rowling, Shakespeare and Jane Austen.
