This year’s Summer School offered by the Research Center of Media and Communication at the University of Hamburg picked up upon a crucial issue for current media development – a topic relevant to academia, media practice and media policy. In the age of digitisation, the landscape of media and communications is being increasingly influenced by phenomena that can be viewed as reappropriations of previously published media communications. The Summer School pursued central questions about the kinds of reappropriated media communications that were being developed and the relationship between ‘old’ and ‘new’ shaping them. This repurposing was analysed from four different perspectives: repurposing as recombination, as reactualisation, as piracy and as plagiarism.
