This special issue ‘Adaptations and History’ has its origins in the Association of Adaptation Studies conference on this theme, held at St. Anne’s College, Oxford in 2016. A hot topic in the field in recent years—with important contributions from inter alia, Tom Leitch, Dudley Andrew, Laurence Raw, and Defne Ersin Tutan—the deliberate conjunction of adaptation and history not only promises fresh interventions in such domains as period drama, heritage film, the biopic, adapting history, and the adaptation of historical novels, but also opens onto wider questions such as whether history is itself a type of adaptation. The essays gathered here represent significant contributions in all these areas as well as new work on adaptation in the particular context of television, a recurring interest in the place of historical revisionism in adaptation, and the wider history of adaptation.
