This volume examines the relevance of remediation to the formation and development of literature and culture in the British Isles and related linguistic-cultural areas around the world. The essays that compose it reconsider how the reception of canonical works and authors have been affected by technological transformations, as well as investigating the reinventions of the literary canon generated by remediating strategies from the Renaissance to contemporary times. They engage with the manifold phenomenology of remediation both in terms of the transference of a literary and cultural artefact from one medium to another, and of the transformation of a single expressive form triggered by the impact of technological changes. Starting from these premises, this volume offers a wide-ranging exploration of forms of multimodality, generic hybridity, and medial conversion within literary and cultural phenomena concerning a variety of English-language cultural traditions. In doing so, it demonstrates how remediation is not merely a phenomenon affecting individual texts or artefacts, but rather a powerful undercurrent permeating the shape and structure of an entire cultural system.

Abstract

This volume examines the relevance of remediation to the formation and development of literature and culture in the British Isles and related linguistic-cultural areas around the world. The essays that compose it reconsider how the reception of canonical works and authors have been affected by technological transformations, as well as investigating the reinventions of the literary canon generated by remediating strategies from the Renaissance to contemporary times. They engage with the manifold phenomenology of remediation both in terms of the transference of a literary and cultural artefact from one medium to another, and of the transformation of a single expressive form triggered by the impact of technological changes. Starting from these premises, this volume offers a wide-ranging exploration of forms of multimodality, generic hybridity, and medial conversion within literary and cultural phenomena concerning a variety of English-language cultural traditions. In doing so, it demonstrates how remediation is not merely a phenomenon affecting individual texts or artefacts, but rather a powerful undercurrent permeating the shape and structure of an entire cultural system.
