A new scholar book with Brontë-related content:
Postcolonial screen adaptation and the British novel 
by Vivian Y. Kao
Palgrave Macmillan, 2020.
ISBN 978-3-03054580-2

Brings literature/film adaptation to bear on the question of how nineteenth-century imperial ideologies of progress continue to inform power inequalities in a global capitalist age
Demonstrates that adaptation, as both method and cultural product, provides a way to engage with the baggage of ideological heritage in our contemporary global media environment
Analyses how a twentieth- or twenty-first-century film adaptation confronts, remediates, and reappropriates the progress ideology—but also the subversive possibilities—inherent in Romantic and Victorian British fiction.

Includes the chapter: Moral Management: Spaces of Domestication in Jane Eyre and I Walked with a Zombie.
