Module overview

This module explores the relationship between digital culture and contemporary fiction. It gives you the opportunity to critically examine how the digital world in which you may, or may not, interact with everyday appears in both online and offline literary culture. We will focus on how contemporary fictional forms shape the understanding and perception of digital culture and, in turn, how digital culture influences fiction. Fictional forms to be considered include the novel, interactive web comics, narrative games, film and television episodes. For your assignments, you will have the opportunity to craft your own commentaries and produce and the option of creating a digital output.
