My Courses

Introduction to Language and Technology

Introduction to Language and Technology

An introduction to the relationship between language and technology by reviewing the history of various technologies of the world, including writing, printing, and digital media.

LIB1201 Research and Documentation for the Information Age Fall 2016

LIB1201 Research and Documentation for the Information Age Fall 2016

This course explores research and documentation for all media formats including text, images, sound, and multimedia. Students will explore information issues, especially in terms of their relevance today: how information is produced and organized in both traditional and emerging media, how information access is affected by political, economic and cultural factors, and the ethics of information use. Students will also acquire the practical skills of locating information sources in a variety of media and formats, critical evaluation of sources, and documentation and citation of traditional and emerging media and technologies. Students will apply what they learn to create and present research and documentation projects.

ENG 2420: Science Fiction

ENG 2420: Science Fiction

English 2420 combines analysis of science fiction as literature with consideration of the questions science and technology raise about past, present, and future societies. In class discussions and essays, students will focus on the basic elements of literary analysis, the historical development of the science fiction genre, and the thematic concerns of each assigned text. Class discussions will address issues of form and will delve into the cultural contexts that have helped shaped some of the core tropes of the genre, such as artificial intelligence and human/machine interactions, the exploration of space and time, and the possibility of extraterrestrial life. Attention will also be paid to the ways in which authors have used utopian and dystopian societies of the future to comment upon humanity’s present relationship with science and technology.

ENG2720 Writing with New Media, SP2016

ENG2720 Writing with New Media, SP2016

In our “Writing with New Media” class, we will define what we mean by the term “new media,” learn a shared terminology for understanding new media, create deliverables with new media individually and collaboratively, and establish the foundation of your professional and technical writing online presence. More specifically, you will: • Experiment with new media communication technologies and articulate how they relate to traditional media technologies; • Develop literacies for reading, evaluating, and creating new media communications; • Collaborate and share your new media compositions within a supportive community of compositionists; • Build heuristics to enable your dynamic transition to learning new media technologies as they emerge, and • Integrate the composition process into your new media creation practices (drafting, revising, and reflection).
