  • Introduction
    • Authors: Strong J.
      Pages: 67 - 68
      Abstract: 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.

  • Performing the Identity of the Medium: Adaptation and Television
           Historiography
    • Authors: Bignell J.
      Pages: 149 - 164
      Abstract: This article focuses on how histories of television construct narratives about what the medium is, how it changes, and how it works in relation to other media. The key examples discussed are dramatic adaptations made and screened in Britain. They include early forms of live transmission of performance shot with multiple cameras, usually in a TV studio, with the aim of bringing an intimate and immediate experience to the viewer. This form shares aspects of medial identity with broadcast radio and live television programmes, and with theatre. The article also analyses adaptations of a later period, mainly filmed dramas for television that were broadcast in weekly serialized episodes, and shot on location to offer viewers a rich engagement with a realized fictional world. Here, film production techniques and technologies are adapted for television, alongside the routines of daily and weekly scheduling that characterize television broadcasting. The article identifies and analyses the questions about what is proper to television that arise from the different forms that adaptations took. The analyses show that television has been a mixed form across its history, while often aiming to reject such intermediality and claim its own specificity as a medium. Television adaptation has, paradoxically, operated as the ground to assert and debate what television could and should be, through a process of transforming pre-existing material. The performance of television’s role has taken place through the relay, repetition, and remediation that adaptation implies, and also through the repudiation of adaptation.

  • Straight to the Source' Where Adaptations, Artworks, Historical Films,
           and Novels Connect
    • Authors: Strong J.
      Pages: 165 - 184
      Abstract: Responding to several recent interventions in adaptation studies that have argued for history-as-adaptation, this article develops a sustained examination of how page-to-screen adaptations may be understood as structured and interpreted in ways analogous to the historical film. Considering the relationship between historical screen texts and the historical novel, including the many novel-to-film adaptations of such stories, the article identifies a distinct subset of adaptations in which artworks and literary works are engaged as the ‘source’ for fictional and semi-fictional narratives that ostensibly address the circumstances of their creation. Re-purposing the term ‘origin story’ to characterize these stories, the works of historical novelist Tracy Chevalier are posited as examples of this creative adaptive practice. In addition, this article argues for the trope of ‘bringing-to-life’ and the associated domain of re-enactment as key modes, deeply resonant since the earliest phases of cinema technology, for figuring both the page-to-screen adaptation and historical film. Finally, the 2015 historical biopic and adaptation Trumbo and its relationship to a range of sources are examined in the light of ideas proposed in this article.

  • Shakespearean Seriality: The ‘Hollow Crown’, the ‘Wooden O’, and
           the ‘Circle in the Water’ of History
    • Authors: Elliott T.
      Pages: 69 - 88
      Abstract: The recent adaptation of Shakespeare’s tetralogies into a two-season television mini-series by the BBC gives new impetus to an age-old question: how do seriality and Shakespeare relate' In The Hollow Crown (2012) and The Wars of the Roses (2016), Richard II’s ‘scepter’d isle’ transforms into 2 Henry VI’s ‘fertile England’ before becoming ‘mad and scarred’ in Richard III. In this ‘swelling scene’ of Shakespearean seriality, ‘time jumps o’er’ from one episode to the next, inviting us to reconsider the spatio-temporal flows of serialized history in the theatre and on screen. Whereas both Shakespeare’s history plays, and television series in general, have often been thought to dramatize little more than the relentless progress of time as it marches forwards into history, this paper argues that The Hollow Crown and The Wars of the Roses systematically disrupt that process. Rather than moving along a simply linear trajectory, these connected series throw up fragile permutations of history that are contested over time. In tracking this process, this paper explores new methods for understanding the narrative processes that govern both the complex patterns of serialized television as well as the shifting flows of history in Shakespeare’s plays.

  • ‘You Think You Know a Story…’: Reframing the Tudors on Television in
           the Twenty-First Century
    • Authors: Mullin R.
      Pages: 89 - 104
      Abstract: Over the past 10 years, there has been an explosion in the number of television dramas about Tudor England. These programmes have been engaged in a re-visioning of history that prioritizes a heterogeneous approach to the past, adapting historical themes, figures, and events in order to challenge existing conceptions about the nature of history. By using Showtime’s The Tudors (2007–2010) and the BBC’s Wolf Hall 2015 as examples, this paper explores how both series reimagine the Tudor era by destabilising traditional modes of historical engagement and emphasizing the shared narrative lineage of historiography and history as entertainment. Ultimately, the paper argues that these programmes are responding not only to new ways of accessing the past, but also by adapting a period which is central to an Anglocentric cultural identity, they are responding to the crises and political faultlines that have marked the twenty-first century.

  • A Cinematic Cultural Memory of Courtship, Weddings, Marriage, and Adultery
           in July Monarchy France through Heritage Films Claude Chabrol’s Madame
           Bovary, Jean-Paul Rappeneau’s The Horseman on the Roof, and Catherine
           Breillat’s The Last Mistress
    • Authors: Doherty A.

      Abstract: Through the cinematic experience of heritage films’ historical reconstitutions, audiences may acquire a vivid cultural memory of prior eras, where the powerful corporeal effect of the cinematographic language stimulates a lived sensation of the past. Yet the recreations of heritage cinema are, at times, refracted through the lens of auteurism, impacting the historical realism and effect of authenticity and in the case of adaptations transforming the original source text. This article considers key French heritage films to depict the July Monarchy in France, investigating how different auteurs influence the films’ sensual audio-visual recreations and consequently spectators’ filmic experience. Former new wave auteur Claude Chabrol’s adaptation Madame Bovary (1991) and its recreation of 1830–1840s France is compared and contrasted with later-generation auteur Jean-Paul Rappeneau’s Le Hussard sur le toit/The Horseman on the Roof (1995) and younger-generation auteur Catherine Breillat’s Une vieille maîtresse/The Last Mistress (2007), exploring history via their unique authorial aesthetics and ideologies. The depiction of (semi-)fictional historical figures during events of the July Monarchy is analysed, in the films’ portraits of past landscapes, focusing on the intimate settings of courtship, weddings, marriage, and adultery during the reign of Louis Philippe I. The article examines the adaptation of Chabrol’s vision of Gustave Flaubert’s canonical 1857 work, together with Rappeneau’s interpretation of Jean Giono’s 1951 novel and Breillat’s recreation of Barbey d’Aurevilly’s 1851 text. It explores the cinematic cultural memory of the past potentially acquired by spectators through the embodied experience of each auteur’s powerful heritage adaptation.

  • Contextualizing History-as-Adaptation: An Interdisciplinary Comparison of
           Historical Revisionism
    • Authors: Weiser F.
      Pages: 105 - 117
      Abstract: The return to history in the humanities during the 1980s prompted literary and film scholars to question historiography’s empirical scientific status, as they instead argued that history shared more in common with fiction while their own fields of study provided means of democratizing the historical record. The concept of history-as-adaptation, recently introduced by Laurence Raw and Defne Ersin Tutan, and further developed by Tom Leitch, draws upon several of the same goals as these earlier revisionist critiques. This article contextualizes how external revision of history has been used by disciplines as a means of solidifying their own identities, despite the fact that history departments have not responded to such criticism. Through a cross-disciplinary analysis of the postmodern interrogation of historical claims, I seek to not only contextualize the adaptive turn but also demonstrate how the field’s comparative identity provides a means of transcending oppositional discourse. Drawing on the work of Robert Berkhofer, I establish a supplemental interpretation of history-as-adaptation, demonstrating the advantages of applying adaptive strategies to the documentary framework at the heart of historical methodology.
