The purpose of this presentation is to acquaint participants with different types of new writing and literary experimentalism to explore Comprehensive Sex Education (CES). To this end, we will analyse and discuss a theatre play and explore its hypertextual relationship with other texts. This will, in turn, foster reflection on the role of popular participatory cultures, remediation and the Derridian concept of the spectre to account for CSE and the "mediamorphosis" of literature in current times.

N.B.: Please read "The Shape of Things" before attending this workshop.
- General overview and characteristics of textual adaptation and remediation.
- Discussion of new forms of literacy, literary (re)production and participatory cultures.

Presentation and discussion of textual adaptation and remediation, intertextuality, collage, fragmentation and dissemination. Exploration of the Derridian concept of the spectre.
