In this course students will explore contemporary Hispanic literature as it moves from the printed page to digital screen. Students will analyze contemporary novels, poems, microtexts and hypertexts in digital and printed formats by authors from Spain, Argentina, Mexico, Columbia and the U.S., among others. The interpretation of these texts will allow us to question how digital literature alters our understanding of reading and writing. What is gained and what is lost when the design of digital spaces alter an author's mode of expression? What assumptions are questioned along the way? Can a Twitter text, for instance, be considered literature? Why, or why not? Coursework includes the writing of several critical blogs and a final interpretive paper expressed in digital format.
