LibGuide for the course Intermedialiteit (ME2V15005)

1. Find and read publications

To do

Try to find an online readable version of the following publications from the course literature.
First establish what kind of publication you are dealing with. Based on this information decide in what database you are going to look first

  1. Rajewsky, Irina O. “Intermediality, Intertextuality and Remediation: A Literary Perspective on Intermediality”. Intermédialités 6 (2005): 43-64.

  2. Lanier, Jaron. “Why I love VR (About the Basics)”. In Dawn of the New Everything: A Journey through VIRTUAL REALITY. London: Vintage Publishing, 2018.

  3. Manovich, Lev. “Hybridization.” In Software Takes Command: Extending the Language of New Media. New York and Londen: Bloomsbury Academic, 2013.

  4. Kattenbelt, Chiel. “Theatre as the Art of the Performer and the Stage of Intermediality.” In Intermediality in Theatre and Performance, edited by Freda Chapple & Chiel Kattenbelt, 31-41. Amsterdam and New York: Rodopi, 2006.

  1. ​Did you find online texts for every publication? 
  2. With regard to the online texts you found, are they available as “full text” or are they only partly accessible?
  3. In case of an article: if you did not find a full text, did you already check Google Scholar (with UBU link) through the library’s website? Do you get the full text now?
  4. In case of a book: if you did not find an online version of the book, you can check at which libraries either hold a printed copy or an electronic version of the book. Did you find an electronic version now?

DISCLAIMER: Although it might sound unbelievable for those who grew up in a digitalised world, sometimes, in particular in the case of older texts, no online texts are available (yet). In this case always check the Utrecht Library collection in WorldCat to see if the text is available in printed form.

2. Add references to Zotero

We will start with a short presentation on Zotero

​Check 'Reference Management using Zotero' for support on adding titles to Zotero.

To do

  • Add the titles of the previous assignment to Zotero using a the Browser extension.
  • Create a collection (for instance "required reading") and put the titles in this collection
  • Add a tag to each title, so that you know for which week it is required reading.
  • Review the title information for these five titles in Zotero. 
    • Is the title information complete?
    • Does Zotero give you direct access to the publication (if online available)?
    • Was the pdf of the publication also added to Zotero?

3. Extra assignment

If you have time left you can:

  • Manually add the pdf's to Zotero.
