R Time 7:00 PM - 9:45 PM
Course Title
Digital Textuality

Description of Course:

We will engage in a 16-week experiment in multi- and trans-media communication, as it is enabled by our current media landscape. We will explore the shifts in representation that have occurred with the transition from analog to digital, including the ways in which the digital transcodes into the analog. The goal is to develop media-specific literacies and as such, students are expected to engage in the production of multiple media forms, both analog and digital. The production of digital textuality may include blogs, wiki, micro-blogs, source code and/or markup, photography, sound, animation, and video. Students will develop a multimedia portfolio which will constitute the center of their final project in the course.
