Tilford Lecture Series - Adapting Tiny Tim: Fidelity and Ideal Bodies - Jamie McDaniel
This presentation will outline how fidelity in adaptation studies offers disability studies a way to recognize that the disabled body does not translate neutrally between adaptations. Similarly, fidelity in disability studies offers adaptation studies a way to employ fidelity-oriented methods without repeating problems associated with this approach. When scholars in disability studies write about literature, film, or other texts with adaptations, they generally treat adaptation as a process that is neither additive nor reductive.
