Abstract

Remix studies branches out of remix culture, an international movement that began during the late 1990s, informed by open source and Do-It-Yourself activities practiced across the Internet. As is common knowledge at this point, the act of remixing has led to major legal conflicts between the private sector, growing social media communities, and participatory cultures on the Internet. Remix studies have developed into a complex field, often evaluated in relation to other contemporary fields of research. Digital humanists, in turn, often focus on subjects that are directly relevant in remix studies. Remix studies emerged in the mid-to-late 2000s and became more established after the 2010s as a field of research due to the need to evaluate and understand how creativity functions with the appropriation, recycling, and transformation of content in all forms of communication. The chapter also presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in this book.
