Reading the Born-Digital Text

E‑books are (final­ly!) out­selling paper­backs; online schol­ar­ly data­bas­es are grow­ing in leaps and bounds while library stacks are mov­ing into stor­age; new works are being pinned, tweet­ed and liked. What does this move to the online envi­ron­ment mean for our tra­di­tion­al read­ing skills? This course explores the inter­pre­tive and cre­ative pos­si­bil­i­ties that are aris­ing along­side the cre­ation of born dig­i­tal texts. Exam­in­ing how online and dis­trib­uted plat­forms are reshap­ing the way we expe­ri­ence, inter­pret and respond to sto­ries is the key focus of this course.
