We will discuss the benefits and risks associated with digital foot-printing and will discuss the importance of self-literacy in a digital culture, particularly as it pertains to managing an online identity. We will also explore the impact that evolving Internet technologies hold for the processes of reading and writing, identity construction, and community-building, as well as the extent to which we as educators must pay attention to these processes in order to stay relevant in an increasingly multimodal society.

The underlying assumption is that there is no such thing as a generic or standard reading of a literary work; all readings take place in and depend on a critical framework, whether that be explicit or implicit. From this starting point, the course is constructed around several critical approaches. One of these is a formalist approach in which students interpret the literary text on the basis of its formal features and stylistic conventions. Students will then explore other opposing and overlapping critical approaches, including but not limited to, feminist, Marxist, historicist, and psychological.
