Glazier :: Online

“Digital Literature Key Works” provides an essential primer on electronic literature, examining a number of “masterworks” of electronic literature from the perspective of the digital revolution. This course will touch on key works in electronic theory as well as electronic literature’s experimental literature precursors. This online course will rely work in and through media, relying not only on your reading of essential sections of the core texts in the field but on video interviews, films, performances, installations, happenings, and media works related to the literature in multimedia modes. *No digital skills nor literature experience is required.* Students will write responses to core readings and also work on a Winter Session final project. The final project can be: (1) creative (as writing, video, digital, or other medium); (2) a compilation of creative/critical journal entries from class topics, or; (3) a creative/critical project of your choosing, in collaboration with the professor. Texts: Some print texts may be assigned with most works relevant to the course available on the Web.
