Summary expansion
In the 21st century, the parallel movements of media convergence and globalization have reshaped our understanding of media boundaries. The rise of digital culture has increased our access to narrative media, while also providing new ways of engaging with them. But, at the same time, global media corporations have intensified their power over these media and the channels through which they reach us. This book brings together a broad range of scholarly approaches to the challenges and opportunities of adaptation studies in this new era. Together, they focus on the political and ideological tensions that underlie and shape processes of adaptation and cultural transformation in the age of media convergence
