OPEN CALL: Issue 8: ADAPTATION, RETELLING
Walter Benjamin claimed that “story telling is always the art of repeating stories”. Stories repeated around the fire, passed on and amended through generations. Stories made into other stories, plays, poems, films.
Adaptation as repetition or retelling; as translation or interpretation; as remaking for changed circumstances; as context shifting.
Linda Hutcheon writes against negative conceptions of adaptation in A Theory of Adaptation. For her, adaptation is “repetition, but repetition without replication”, and “always involves both (re)interpretation and then (re)creation”.
We invite submissions before 7th December that consider ideas of adaptation for our Issue 8.
