"Sub/versions" draws together recent work analysing texts that exist in a complicated relationship to issues of "high" and "low" culture. An important aspect of this debate is the manner in which the critical reception of "original" versions can act to resist the validity of new or re-imagined adaptations. Equally important is the reception of works that are self-consciously intertextual, or exist in various forms and different media. The research represented here examines these issues, exploring the changes that are made between versions and the ways in which these transformations might subvert the original text. The approach of this collection is therefore fundamentally interdisciplinary, drawing on a range of topics related to subversion and "sub/versions", including translation, parody, satire, metafiction, performance, allegory, and genre.
