Here it is, folks. I hope you can begin to tell at least, but in my project I'm interested in addressing how the current interest surrounding the concept of "re-mix" in our field is actually not that different than earlier views on using imitation to teach writing. Eventually, I'll look at how and why imitation fell out of vogue in composition (namely, I'll attempt to trace the death of imitation in our field as critical pedagogies emerged). I'm interested, too, in what imitation and re-mix allow us to think about (form and, most importantly, the form-content relationship). I see this project, tracing the relationship between "re-mix" and "imitation" as significant to the broader work I'm trying to do in understanding our current attention to form through multi-media work within our field without addressing past challenges to similar work. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or thoughts thus far. I worked hard on the "roots." Oh, and please view the project in "full screen" mode if you can. I think it does matter.
