English Studies in the Digital Age (St Johns U, Spring 2014)

This class is being taught by Jennifer Travis. The course investigates how digital technologies impact the way we read, study, and understand literature and is inspired by the following questions: What happens to literature and “the literary” in an age of digital technology? How are modern technological innovations like the computer and e-reader reshaping our understanding of texts and their writers, readers, and interpreters? What is digital literature and how do we contextualize it within a history of literature and literary aesthetic?
