OCT 16 | RIP: A Remix Manifesto

Culture Always Builds On the Past: Did Muddy Waters build on the blues? And did Led Zeppelin build on Muddy Waters? Does Girl Talk need permission to build on all of it? Join CNET English 100 students in a Friday afternoon screening of Brett Gaylor’s provocative NFB documentary on copyright, creativity, and the future. A moderated discussion will follow. Light refreshments served. Running time: 1hr 26min.

OCT 20 – NOV 5 | E-LIT Fall Forum, 2nd edition

CNET English 214 students will be cozying up with the ELC1 (Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 1) later this fall. They will also be taking a lead roll in the second edition of our electronic forum with digital writers from around the globe. Last year’s contributors included J.R. Carpenter, Donna Leishman, and Brian Kim Stefans.  This year we will be working with Megan Sapnar Ankerson, Sharif Ezzat, and Chris Joseph.  The E-LIT Forum will be hosted and archived on CultureNet @ CapilanoU.  For more information see or contact Aurelea Mahood:


Join CNET English 100 students in a Friday afternoon excursion to the Contemporary Art Gallery for a guided tour of Paying Homage.  This CAG exhibit explores the relationships between artists and what it means to pay homage to the past.  This tour will build on many of ideas introduced in RIP and take them into a gallery setting.
