Freeside Europe welcomes quality work that focuses on research, development, and review.
The theme of the upcoming issue:
From Adapting to Adaptation

The past few years have undeniably brought changes that highlighted the importance of one’s ability to adapt. The Covid epidemic and the war in Ukraine created unexpected situations where one had to adjust to a radically altered environment almost overnight. Recent developments in the use of AI also posed new challenges. In an era where radical changes constantly redefine norms, one might even say that one has to adapt to adaptation itself, to the growing importance of the skill of adaptation.
Adaptation, of course, is a key concept in different contexts, as well. The concept of cultural adaptation, for instance, should be mentioned. This term defines the ability of people and societies to overcome and adapt to changes in the natural and social environment through slight changes to their usual way of life (e.g., the case of indigenous cultures, ethnicities, and minorities). Finally, the word adaptation is most obviously associated with the practice of recreating pieces of literature in various media. Ancient as this phenomenon may be, it is still a highly relevant object of study due to the current proliferation of new forms of media and the general popularity of adaptations.
We invite contributions on the phenomenon of adaptation, understood broadly in any context, from the academic fields of literary studies, linguistics, translation studies, and cultural studies. Potential topics to explore include but are not limited to:
– Intermedial adaptation (e.g., adapting novels to movies, comic books, video games, etc.)
– Literary and cinematic depictions of adaptation
– Translation as adaptation
– Intercultural communication as adaptation
– Code-switching as adaptation
– Adapting to new challenges in the classroom
– Cultural adaptation
– Identity adaptation to social, cultural, and historical context
– Socio-cultural adaptation (ability to fit in with the social life in the new culture; the performance of individuals in the daily social life.)
