This interdisciplinary seminar brings together humanities and applied sciences, addressing questions of literacy, media, and modes of knowledge. The course is organized around poetry and digital technology and explores the history of each as systems of relating, organizing, and understanding the real. Media technologies and means of communication for both poetry and computing -- from orality to writing, from the alphabet to the printing press, from the scroll to the book, from computers to the internet -- structure our discussion.
Seniors, juniors, and sophomores may apply to enroll in this course, which is limited to 16 students. The application is now open. Admission decisions will be returned to applicants as soon as possible and before Seniors begin to enroll.
