This class will explore as many possibilities for what can emerge from junctures of high and low technologies and the Humanities as possible. The explosion of opportunities for text-based user content in social networking and other online interfaces will be studied to find ways to make such interfaces useful in generating and utilizing Humanities-related content. We will consider the impact that the ease of sharing and collaborating has on configurations of content as we increasingly function ideologically as a remix culture reshaping notions of ownership. Indeed, the position of the course is, as it is in Limited Fork Theory, that most everything is collaborative in nature, and has been collaborative even before the rise of remix culture. Students will set up and maintain a class presence on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, iTunes podcasts, co-authored blogs, and/or websites. We will explore interfaces of multiple modes of digital discourse: time-based and static visual content, sonic content, and will focus on matters of access and formation of policy surrounding access and ownership. Mobile and portable devices will also figure into our interactions with digital technologies. With so much being automated now, students with no background in HTML or Flash will still be able to produce impressive-looking online presences, and there will be opportunities to learn basic HTML as well as other applications that can assist with the generation of digital work. We will also explore the future of the book and other paper-based Humanities-related objects as, through principles of Limited Fork Theory, we learn that the possibilities of paper have not yet been fully realized. You must be willing to share in order to succeed in this course. An iPhone and iPod touch friendly course.
