In Adaptation Studies and Learning: New Frontiers, Laurence Raw and Tony Gurr seek to redefine the ways in which adaptation is taught and learned. Comprised of essays, reflections, and learning conversations about the ways in which this approach to adaptation might be implemented, this book focuses on issues of curriculum construction, the role of technology, and the importance of collaboration. By looking beyond the classroom, the authors consider how adaptation assumes equal importance in the world of the cinema as in the academy, demonstrating how adaptation studies involves real-world issues of prime importance-not only to film and theater professionals, but to all learners.
