·       Screen adaptations of canonical or popular authors

·       Adaptation franchises

·       Modernism and adaptation

·       Adaptations in the silent period, the 1930s, the war years, post-war, late 20th or early 21st centuries

The deadline for AHRC funding applications is the 9th of January 2014, by which time students must have applied for a place to study and have provided two references to a university within the DTP.
