Abstract

Gevirtz argues that adaptations not only affect the cultural capital of the adapted material and the adaptation, but also affect the cultural construction of historical moments. Analyzing Becoming Jane (2007), Gulliver's Travels (2010), and Crusoe (2008-9), Gevirtz shows how adaptations create a version of history that in turn presents a particular construction of the present moment.
