Roundtable on remediation of French literature

Abstract (in English): 

Syntonie is a project of digital review for ipad that would prefigure an anthology of French digital poetry. Only 3 works originally designed for a computer will be carried on ipad. The choose of the works, the new computing and the semiotics design will be done at the laboratory Paragraphe in relationship with the publisher. We will examine here the questions that this remediatisation asked: what is lost? What is preserved? What is changed? What balance between mediation for present audience and fidelity to the work? Are they facets of the work we can only document (semiotic representations inside the original program for instance)? Is remediatisation an act of preservation?

All these questions will be asked in technical, semiotics, literary and publishing points of view. The project will only begin in February and we will document all the process.
