New media are far from new. The World Wide Web is now more than twenty years old, digital games can be found on every platform, and social media’s visual, textual, and cultural practices govern many aspects of users’ experiences of their own lived environments. This course will trace the suppressed history of queer inventors, programmers, and developers in digital technology and games, analyze key texts in queer media theory, and pay particular attention to changing notions of the body, race, and gender in social media and games.
