    This introduction outlines the meaning of ‘intermediality’, both with respect to the prefix ‘inter’, which does not only hint at interactions ‘between’ media but also at commentary about and phenomena within media, as well as to the concept of ‘media(lity)’. In so doing, it explains and critiques, for those new to intermedial analysis, the major schools of thought which define this field, drawing on Rajewsky, Elleström, Bruhn, Wolf, and their peers. It also demonstrates why intermediality is a useful framework for Classics research using Roman comedy as a case study, and contains chapter summaries for the special issue as a whole.
