  • Elit - Shelley Jackson :difference and form:

    • How do we read a hypertext? Does "difference" play a role in our navigation, or readerly experience?
    • How does Jackson's metaphor of "patchwork" or the structure of the piece relate to difference?
    • Do her narratives and meditations on identity speak to our readings about difference?


Moving Ahead:
Next week we begin readings from the Critical Terms anthology.

discussion of changing the format from group questions to group summaries;we can continue to use the individual responses as a place to articulate questions.

  1. Please read the assignment description for the concept essay and start thinking about a topic that might compel you. We'll discuss this further next week, and I am available to meet with you individually or provide feedback via email.
