Language and Literature teachers willing to integrate innovative texts, new media and visual literacies in their daily teaching
The purpose of this course is to acquaint participants with different types of new writing and literary experimentalism. To this end, we will explore textual adaptation, remediation and digital technologies to account for the “mediamorphosis” of literature in current times. This will, in turn, foster discussion among participants on their response to different textual forms and the role of popular participatory cultures.
- General overview and characteristics of textual adaptation and remediation
- Discussion of new forms of literacy, literary (re)production and participatory cultures
- Discussion of different types of new writing and different (post)texts
Presentation and discussion of textual adaptation and remediation. Exploration of some examples of new writing and different (post)texts. Guided group reflection and exchange of ideas on the main issues raised by the texts under analysis.
