Wednesday

Today we'll devote some time to reflecting on Adam Hammond's book; I'll share some highlights; you should feel free to direct the discussion to address your questions, concerns, or interests. We'll look at two somewhat different non-print texts. Are they texts? And do we read them? Or watch them or play them? We're leading up towards exploration of Twine – which is a writing environment you'll use to make your own hypertext or game.

1. Discussion

Adam Hammond readings, Tues/Weds highlights Hammond-C1-C6-C7-discussion-notes

2. E-Lit First Foray

Jackson. Multilinearity. Writing a hypertext fiction. User/ reader experience. How does this digital framework lend itself towards altered literary forms?

Young Hae Chang. Animation. Time-based reading, word and sound. Literature “filmed” for the screen. User/reader experience. Author/composer choices.

3. Your blogs

Reading responses + other elements of a professional academic site/blog (including pages).
