Digital Literatures and Comparative Media
The courses in this minor challenge students to think about how “the digital” in new comparative media affects the way we read, study, and understand literature: What happens to literature and “the literary” in an age of digital technology and new forms of media? The courses in this minor examine a varied collection of print genres and electronic literature in order to understand the current state of this new literary field and its relation to traditional concepts of literary study. The minor provides an entry point into investigating particular aspects of the general category of “the digital” and its comparative relation to the “the literary.”
Students must take ENGL-215 (Text and Code) and four other English courses. Please see our flyer to determine which classes are applicable to the immersion.
