Scott A. Lukasstudies of cultural remaking

My research focuses on the cultural significance of forms of remaking. Remaking is defined as a cultural intervention in which a media form is transformed into another media form. I am interested in the consequences (economic, political, representational, cultural) in which remaking occurs. My studies have included theme parks and themed spaces, film, video games, gender and crime. I am beginning a new project on the anthropology of popular culture and a second on experimental research methods.
