Award-winning author-illustrator Carol Adlam takes us into the magical world of illustration, graphic novels, creative writing, and adapting crime fiction. Join us as she and Dr Claire Whitehead (Department of Russian, School of Modern Languages) discuss their four-year collaborative project ‘Lost Detectives: Adapting Old Texts to New Media’, which has culminated in a major graphic novel, The Russian Detective (Jonathan Cape, 2024). Carol’s wide-ranging adaptations across audio drama, libretto, and graphic novels give us new insights into how artists and academics can work together. Carol will show us previously unseen behind-the-scenes material, original artwork, as well as tips, tricks, and a little bit of magic.
