Twenty-first century media have seen a rise not only in remakes and ‘re-imaginings’, but also transmedia adaptations, works based in nostalgic callbacks, fan-written versions of media, and genre-bending remixes. While a wider body of work exists on transmedia storytelling and adaptation, Gothic horror remakes are still a rich and largely unexplored subject, even as interest in the remake phenomenon continues to grow. And yet, the history of Gothic horror in film and television is rich in re-adaptations, and re-conceptualizations, where the literary roots of Gothic horror tropes, narratives, and characterizations continue to resurface and uncannily return.

The last decade has witnessed a transformation in electronic visual media. Film, television, video games and user- generated- content (UGC) are increasingly commingling.

Kanada Koncrete: verbi-voco-visual poetries in the age of multimedia

The multi-media possibilities of the web, the optic flexibility of digital books, the ability to record image and sound cheaply and share that material quickly and widely over a variety of platforms, have drastically undermined poets' dependence on the page and print-based forms of distribution. Something has changed in the manner we encounter poetry. To what extent, though, have these technological changes transformed the forms and functions of poetry as such? Have they finally produced the necessary conditions for truly 'verbi-voco-visual' work, a one-time dream of the modernist avant-garde?  Have multimedia forms of poetry displaced more traditional forms and formats?

College Literature Special Issue: “Lively Words: The Politics and Poetics of Experimental Writing,” edited by Tyler Bradway.

Thursday, April 13, 2017 - 10:42am
College Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

The title of this special issue draws inspiration from Gertrude Stein’s “lively words,” a style of experimental writing that has been influential for many queer and feminist experimental writers. The essays in this special issue will reconsider the “liveliness” of experimental writing in the twentieth and twenty-first century—not only how experimental poetics disrupt codified practices of reading, but also how experimental writers conceive of the relationship between their words and the social world more broadly.
