Program Description:
Description
The proliferation of digital information and communications technologies over the past half-century has transformed and continues to transform how literary works are composed, produced, circulated, read, and interpreted. What new forms and practices of reading and writing have emerged in this late age of typography? What is the nature, extent, and significance of these changes? This course re-assesses questions and themes long central to the study of literature including: archiving, authorship, canon formation, circulation and access, materiality, narrative, poetics, and readership, among others. The course aims to understand our present moment in a historical global context by pairing contemporary works with texts from and about other shifts in media from the ancient world to the contemporary era. Readings include Augustine, Borges, Eisenstein, Flusser, Hayles, Jenkins, and Plato, as well as works of HTML/hypertext fiction, Twitter literature, online poetry, fan fiction, and so on. Coursework will include online and off-line activities in addition to traditional papers. This course is cross-listed with Experimental Humanities. Please contact the professor prior to registering for this course.
