This course explores how contemporary writers and artists have attempted to experiment with the post-print era - characterized by the strategies of fragmentation and recombination that digital hyperspaces make possible. By analysing digital texts and the work of cultural theorists on the nature and impact of this new medium, students will address the implications of the rise of computing and the internet for the future of literary and other cultural practices.
Notes: ENGL 2B03 is strongly recommended in advance of 300 or 400 level ENGL Literature courses.
