Language and Literature teachers willing to integrate innovative texts, new media and visual literacies in their daily teaching


The purpose of this presentation is to acquaint participants with different types of new writing and literary experimentalism. To this end, we will explore the hypertextual re-working of a given set of texts. This will, in turn, foster discussion among participants on their response to different textual forms, the role of popular participatory cultures, remediation and the Derridian concept of the spectre to account for the "mediamorphosis" of literature in current times.


- General overview and characteristics of textual adaptation and remediation.
- Discussion of new forms of literacy, literary (re)production and participatory cultures.
- Exploration of the Derridian concept of the spectre.
- Discussion of the hypertextal re-working of the set texts to be read during the workshop.


Presentation and discussion of textual adaptation and remediation, intertextuality, collage, fragmentation and dissemination. Exploration of the Derridian concept of the spectre. Guided group reflection and exchange of ideas on the main issues raised by the comparative analysis of the texts read during the workshop. Zoom: Date: 24/10 Time: 10.00 a.m. - 11.30 a.m.
