A STORY IS ALWAYS BORN TWICE

€ 10,00  |  ISBN 978-88-99573-19-5

                                  
                                   

The essays collected in this volume approach adaptation from many different perspectives that bring into play different media and/or delivery channels, as well as different genres and contexts, ranging from literature to film, from novel to drama, to interactive media and fandom. Focusing on specific case studies, the essays tackle a variety of issues in relation to practices of adaptation such as transcultural appropriation and hybridization, visuality and the uncanny, identity and abjection, and the politics of representation, and show how exciting it is to follow the journey of a story from one to another of its many possible stations. A story is born twice, ten, a hundred times, and it is never born the same.
