Remakes and Remaking

Concepts—Media—Practices

Edited by Rüdiger Heinze and Lucia Krämer

Transcript-Verlag

From Avatar to danced versions of Romeo and Juliet, from Bollywood films to Star Wars Uncut: This book investigates film remakes as well as forms of remaking in other media, such as ballet and internet fan art. The case studies introduce readers to a variety of texts and remaking practices from different cultural spheres. The essays also discuss forms of remaking in relation to neighbouring phenomena like the sequel, prequel and (re-)adaptation. Remakes and Remaking thus provides a necessary and topical addition to the recent conceptual scholarship on intermediality, transmediality and adaptation.
