DCD 231 - New Media and Digital Culture: From the Printing Press to Virtual Reality (3 credits)


(=ENGL 231) (=NMDC 231) (Prereq: ENGL 101) This course employs an approach of “critical making” to explore the historical and contemporary transformations of identity, texts, and culture that follow in the wake of major shifts in new media. The course begins with some historical grounding in new media and then moves into a study of contemporary digital environments, texts, and culture through humanistic thought and expression and critical making: students will learn to produce in these environments while exploring the implications of these digital objects and texts (possible skills: HTML; web design; digital storytelling; Processing; code). This course is designed as a hybrid course and is designed around innovative developments in online and real-time learning. F, S, M, Su.
