Symposium “Remix in Retrospect: Looking Back to See the Future of Authorship”, taking place at VU University Amsterdam on 21 October 2011.
Six internationally renowned speakers (e.g. professor Adriaan van der Weel (Leiden), dr. Kate Eichhorn (New York) and dr. Adam Smyth (London)) will discuss the changing roles of authors and readers in different stages of media history (from manuscript to print and digital textuality) and the implications of these changes for the creation of texts and the status of authorship. How may knowledge of historical developments in manuscript and print culture feed the current debate on authorship, reading, copy-right, and creativity in the digital age? And how may a contemporary point of view help us understand and evaluate past practices?
Date: Friday afternoon, 21 October 2011
Location: VU University, Faculty of Arts, De Boelelaan 1105 Amsterdam, The Netherlands
