Literature and Digital Illumination
We are both doctoral students in English literature at The Ohio State University, but we share an interest in assessing digital media’s value in the classroom.
We began thinking about this project in response to our participation in OSU’s Digital Media and Composition (DMAC) Institute last summer. While most participants were representatives of rhetoric and composition programs, we were not. And we wondered why that was so.
The institute’s directors, Cindy Selfe and Scott DeWitt, generously helped to provide direction for this projectâ€”encouraging us to ask questions about the culture of pedagogical technology in English departments and to formulate our stance on literature and digital media.
