Telenovelas and/as adaptation : reflections on local adaptations of global telenovelas

Stijn Joye UGent, Daniël Biltereyst UGent and Fien Adriaens (2017) Oxford Handbook of adaptation studies. p.356-369
abstract
Within an emerging tradition of adaptation research that looks beyond fidelity-driven inquiries into exclusively literary adaptations, the case of telenovelas is exemplary for a contemporary media industry that is characterized by the cross-media and cross-border exchange of narratives. Focusing on the recent revival and international success of the telenovela genre and format, this essay reflects on a series of extra-textual features and contexts that are related to the practice of adapting global telenovela formats into different cultural environments. Therefore, we approach telenovelas as localizable yet universally appealing cultural products and narratives that undergo a tailoring process to match the local expectations or to conform to local sensibilities and (cultural, narrative, production) codes.
