Title: Translation, Adaptation and Transformation
Edited By: Laurence Raw
URL: http://bloomsbury.com/uk/translation-adaptation-and-transformation-9781472531292/
Series Title: Bloomsbury Advances in Translation
Description:

In recent years adaptation studies has established itself as a discipline in its own right, separate from translation studies. The bulk of its activity to date has been restricted to literature and film departments, focusing on questions of textual transfer and adaptation of text to film. It is however, much more interdisciplinary, and is not simply a case of transferring content from one medium to another. This collection furthers the research into exactly what the act of adaptation involves and whether it differs from other acts of textual rewriting.

In addition, the ‘cultural turn' in translation studies has prompted many scholars to consider adaptation as a form of inter-semiotic translation. But what does this mean, and how can we best theorize it? What are the semiotic systems that underlie translation and adaptation? Containing theoretical chapters and personal accounts of actual adaptations and translations, this is an original contribution to translation and adaptation studies which will appeal to researchers and graduate students.
