The journal Caliban was created in 1964. Entitled Anglophonia/Caliban from 1997 to January 2014 (alternating with the journal of linguistics Anglophonia/Sigma, with one issue a year), it took its original title Caliban again in 2014. There are two issues per year. It is devoted to the literatures and civilisations of English-speaking countries (British Isles, USA, Canada, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, India, Caribbean Islands, etc...). Every issue is thematic and favours recent research in the fields of literature, civilisation and visual arts. It offers young searchers the opportunity to have their research known.

Échanges et transformations : le Moyen Âge, la Renaissance et leurs réécritures contemporaines

Exchanges and Transformations:The Middle Ages, the Renaissance and Contempory Reworkings

This volume focuses on Medieval and Early Modern culture and how it circulates both in England and across national borders. By means of adoption, adaptation, translation and appropriation, themes, motifs and ideas mutate over time, and discourses and images reappear in the modern period, are adapted to fit new contexts and migrate to new artistic forms such as opera, cinema and comic strip. The essays in this issue demonstrate the range and fruitfulness of exchanges across cultures, periods and art forms. I. The Circulation of Ideas II. Metamorphoses of the Drama: Medieval and Renaissance Theatre III. Contemporary Reworkings
