Course Description

This semester we will explore how/why personal identity, relationships, authenticity, privacy, and communication/composing change in “digital” spaces. We will think through our digital selves (how and why we perform certain types of identities in certain environments) as well as how we make connections, live, study, relate, communicate, and work in networked online environments. Since this is a composition course, we will never leave writing out of the picture: all class meetings will be devoted in part to writing, revising, and/or discussing ideas and drafts. The last segment of the course is devoted primarily to improving writing and working through students’ own research projects.

ENG 1101 (English Composition I) is: “A course in effective essay writing and basic research techniques, including use of the library. College-level readings are assigned for classroom discussion and essay writing.”
