Expanded Course Description
What happens when digital tools meet literary studies? What can the digital turn in literary studies help us to understand about literary history, language, aesthetics, form, cultural networks, adaptation, rhetoric, and the transmission of the written word? In this course you’ll learn how to use digital tools to read and analyze literature. At the same time, we will focus on the ways that literary analysis can help us to evaluate the power and limits of reading with digital tools. This course will give you an opportunity to learn how to use digital tools to create word clouds, social networks, maps, and digital publishing platforms used in literary analysis. The course will also emphasize the significance of the historical traditions of knowledge production on which digital practices depend and from which they have emerged. Therefore, this course focuses on both the study of digital culture as an object of analysis and as a methodology for studying literary works in new ways. Designed to satisfy Arts and Letter group requirements.
