The internet allows the collection and expression of more voices, stories, and experiences than ever before. The volume of material, and the variety of technologies available, are also transforming the ways in which these incidents are told, collected, preserved, and transmitted. Creating and interacting within a virtual environment has encouraged a form of digital cosmopolitanism that challenges our notions of tangible space, linear time, and the link between "self" and body. This course will explore diverse methods of understanding and representing identity, time, and place across different disciplines and different digital media. Students will learn and gain hands-on experience with key apps and other software tools and produce their own digital projects. (No specific computer expertise is required.)
