New Media and Digital Culture Minor
From Twitter Revolutions to online literary journals and news blogs, the world of writing and publishing is changing at a dramatic pace. The emphasis on New Media and Digital Culture builds on the practices and theories of traditional and historical studies to explore the changing dimensions of textual production, reading communities, and scholarship in an age of digital reproduction. The research and teaching interests of faculty in New Media and Digital Culture focus on a range of questions related to new media, literature, writing, and digital culture: How do you prepare to be an informed and creative writer or scholar in an increasingly digital world? What is the role of literary and cultural history in affecting thoughtful critiques about how we create and access digital texts and information? How is new media changing how we think about authorship, copyright, and the past, present, and future of mediated interaction and communication?
