Remix Before YouTube: A Presentation by Francesca Coppa


Vidding is the forerunner of the modern remix. Francesca Coppa will take a look at this important phenomenon, discussing the tools and distribution systems that existed decades before YouTube.

Francesca Coppa is Professor of English at Muhlenberg College and a founding member of the Organization For Transformative Works, a nonprofit established by fans to provide access to and preserve the history of fanworks and culture. She recently co-edited the “Fan/Remix Video” issue of Transformative Works and Cultures and is currently writing a history of fan vidding for the University of Iowa Press.
