ENG 2101 - Remixing Popular Culture

Credits: 4
In this course, we are going to explore this equation: “old + old + old = new.” We will explore remixed texts - “texts that build on the prior texts of others by technically editing and modifying them in order to produce a new creative work” (Jones & Hafner 198). We will critically examine how remix culture has evolved and is challenging assumptions we have about authorship, authenticity, and copyright. We’ll be learning about remix theory as well as how to remix. The course will help us hone our ability to argue using multimedia by creating political and social remixes using popular culture artifacts (i.e. TV shows, movies, music, and cereal boxes).
