Adapt, Adopt, Adept: The Material Phenomenon

March 23rd and 24th

BP Energy Center, Anchorage, AK

 

Adaptation, in its various forms and mediums, is, according to Linda Hutcheon, often viewed as “minor and subsidiary and certainly never as good as the ‘original.'” At a base understanding, audiences understand adaptation as the process or product of change. Adaptation theory proposes that the many facets of adaptation, such as adoption, translation, shifting, modeling, and even appropriation, are complicated processes and products not easily defined.

In the last five years or so, rhetoric and composition scholarship has offered work that brings digital media and bodies to the forefront to shape pedagogical praxis, illuminate cultural practices, and extend composition studies (into writing studies). Yet, much of this scholarship remains focused on the rhetorical construction of embodiment, as indicated by several recent journal special issues: Perspectives and Definitions of Digital Rhetoric (Enculturation 23 2016), Wearable Rhetorics: Bodies, Cities, Collectives (Rhetoric Society Quarterly 46.3 2016), Embodied and Affective Rhetorics (Present Tense 6.1 2016), Embodied Sound (Kairos 21.1 2016), and Sexing Colorlines: Black Sexualities, Popular Culture, and Cultural Production (Poroi 7.2 2011).
