'Adapting History: Applying Adaptation Theory to Historical Film and Television'
I am applying the principles of Adaptation Theory to Historical film and television. This research is focused upon the decisions and processes that govern how a representation of the past is made on screen and how it is similar to more traditional forms of adaptation, for example book-to-film. This consists of a series of specific case studies, which include: the depiction of The Black Death in film, the creation of a medieval aesthetic in Game of Thrones and how the depiction of Henry VIII has changed in film and television.
