ENGL 690: Digital Literacies, Pedagogies, and Politics (Paster)


In this class, students will investigate the political and cultural nature of the web as they question how emerging technologies intersect with the teaching of composition.  While the web is a shifting space, continually being built and rebuilt, constructed and reconstructed, students will study the social, historical, and economic factors that situate digital sites. Though this course does not approach the web as a static landscape, it does invite students to explore the ways in which digital spaces function in light of issues of representation, textual economies, and political potential.  As they come to understand emerging technologies and the digital practices associated with them in rich ways, students will question the potentialities of digital approaches to the writing classroom.
