Pedagogy Intervention

Pedagogical intervention (overview)

Final reading: Literature in the Digital Age, 198-202.


  1. In-class blogging (15min): your "coda," reflecting on DH and its impact or relevance for your future study, teaching, research, and/or career.
  2. Discussion

"My own experience, and that of my students over the years, suggests that digital forms like the e-book have allowed us to better 'see' the physical book. Not until we are forced to click or swipe our way through the screens of an e-book do we realize how satisfying it is to flip through the physical leaves of a book, scanning forward to the start of the next chapter, marking the spot with a finger." (201)

"...there is no outside the digital.... The advent of the digital heralds not the death of literature, but an opportunity to look at it with fresh eyes. This is not the end of the book, but the beginnning of an exploration." (206)
