Digital Literary Studies

This course will offer an introduction to digital literature and computational criticism. Students will read "born digital" literary works like flash poetry, interactive fiction, and video games, while also learning computational methods of literary curation and analysis. Students will learn to edit literature for the web in text-based and multimodal forms. Most importantly, they will be asked to test the limits of their own thinking about the nature of beauty, the value of books, and the politics of our increasingly digitized world.
