Abstract or Summary
  • The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is a multimodal adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, released from 2012-2013. As a media event, the show proved how effective transmedia storytelling can be, eventually winning an Emmy for Original Interactive Program. In creating an intensely immediate narrative world, the series adapted more than Jane Austen’s story; it adapted the semipublic experience of reading emerging novels. Like the forms of autobiographical, serial, and epistolary novels, it blurred lines between public and private, fiction and nonfiction. The resulting immediacy provoked and enabled particular kinds of political conversations and action. Just as the early novel provided opportunities for women to challenge patriarchal standards by writing or participating in the semipublic, today's nontraditional media forms offer renewed ways to confront those standards which have been re-inscribed. These connections demonstrate the importance of viewing adaptation not only through vertical relationships, such as palimpsests, but also horizontally, through transhistorical approaches.
