Abstract

The notion of remediation can be taken to refer to a series of linguistic, cultural and psychological processes by means of which language and discourse are transformed and refashioned into new forms. Remediation functions via language, that is, the system through which we interpret and construct our understanding of reality, and at the same time, it functions through the sense of self we perceive and project onto others. Therefore, remediation can relate to the elaboration of new and hybrid text-types as well as representations of identity. The contributions in this volume span a wide spectrum of text genres and subgenres in which remediation is examined in numerous forms of formal and informal communication. The papers are roughly collocated in broad sections, according not only to the mode and medium of communication (Remediation and Discourse, Remediation and Media, Remediation and Social Media), but also in terms of the intra- and interlingual transpositions that are discussed in a comparative vein (Remediation and Translation). Needless to say, since the contents of many papers spill over into other sections, they may well be relevant to the discussions elsewhere.
