Course description: EN 211 Literature Wired: The Digital Humanities

Digital technology is reinventing how we play and how we study. It's remaking our literature, our classrooms, our universities. It's even reshaping your brain. In this experimental and experiential class, we'll spend a lot of time discussing ideas; more developing hands-on projects. You become not consumer, but producer of knowledge. By definition multidisciplinary, the course will equip you with tools for learning and living that can expand along a multitude of paths. No need for programming skills. Enthusiasm, creativity, and delight in collaboration, however, will be at a premium. Bring your imagination. Professor Joe Nugent
