New Media and Experimental Writing

Exploring experimental modes of writing, this module focuses on form and mode whilst placing new media writings in a longer tradition of experimental writing. This gives you the opportunity to critically explore your own writing practice in relation to literary texts, new media texts, and experimental and collaborative practices.

We will engage with and develop writing practices which correspond to a range of forms and media: the codex (book), e-lit or digital literature, games, visual media. And we will evaluate the range of critical responses to experimental literature, digital literature, remix culture and games narrative.

Indicative study themes:
