Remix is ___________
As the world grows more connected through digital communication, globalized economies, and interdependent political structures, our work as scholars increasingly turns to questions of intertextuality and hybridity - in a word, the remix. While remix is often thought of as a digital phenomenon, when conceived more broadly, remix has the power to complicate traditional theoretical frameworks, generic definitions, disciplinary boundaries, and modes of intellectual and cultural production. This conference encourages interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary presentations that expand, interrogate, and/or disrupt our understanding of remix, the cultural work it performs, and its relationship to intertextuality and hybridity. We especially encourage conceptions of remix that move beyond remix as an object and consider how it functions as a theoretical heuristic.
We invite you to critique, analyze, and/or create remixes that challenge and expand these ideas. Just fill in the blank: Remix is____________
Possible Lines of Inquiry Include, But are Not Limited To:
Elisabeth Hodges, an Associate Professor of French and an Affiliate in the Film Studies program at Miami University, will be speaking on her upcoming book project on interiority in French cinema. Additionally she will discuss how her own trajectory as a scholar of Renaissance cities to a scholar of French cinema is a “remix” of her interests.
