ENGL 550/450 Digital Narratives: Technology/New Media (Humanities Elective)

(Summer—alternate years/3 credits) 

This course first studies traditional notions of narrative in light of over half a millennium of the printed word, and then considers how the new technology of digital narratives— hypertext fiction, the World Wide Web, virtual reality, e-mail and video games—are changing notions of social identity, literacy and reality and how we construct and “read” the world around us.
