Writing With & About New Media

Fall 2018

Taught By: Elvia Wilk

Section: A

CRN: 7563

Credits: 4

How do new media technologies change the way we read and see, write and make? The main objective of this course is to become familiar with contemporary discourse surrounding new media art, focusing on the relationship between text and image. We will explore the possibilities for exhibiting artwork beyond traditional media, investigating how different contexts (physical, digital) shape the encounter. This will entail a survey of historical movements and forms such as, electronic literature, hypertext fiction, and tactical tech, and will also generate ways for students to frame and discuss their own production. The inquiry extends beyond writing and talking about new media, also considering ways to write with and through new media, according to the premise that writing itself changes in response to new visual and technical forms.
