I am happy to announce the publication of *Queer/Adaptation: A Collection
of Critical Essays*, in the Palgrave Studies in Adaptation and Visual
Culture series.

This is the first scholarly text to focus on the intersection of Queer
theory and Adaptation theory.

This ground-breaking volume brings together fifteen original essays
organized in three parts:

   - The essays in Part I examine what happens when an adaptation queers
   its source text and explore the role of the author/screenwriter/director in
   making those choices.
   - The essays in Part II look at what happens when filmmakers push
   against boundaries of various kinds: time and space, texts and bodies,
   genres and formats.
   - The essays in Part III explore adaptations whose source texts cannot
   be easily pinned down, where there are multiple adaptations, and where the
   adaptation process itself is queer.

The book includes discussion of a wide variety of texts, including opera,
classic film, genre fiction, documentary, musicals, literary fiction,
low-budget horror, camp classics, and experimental texts, providing a
comprehensive and interdisciplinary introduction to the myriad ways in
which queer and adaptation overlap.

Available in hardcover and as an ebook. Individual chapters also available
for download. For more information, please see the publisher’s website:
