50:209:302 Special Topics in DS: Podcasting and Digital Broadcasting
Robert Emmons
T 2:00-4:50pm

The Internet has changed the way stories can be told and delivered. Podcasting has risen from its DIY Internet radio roots to become a diverse and dominant medium in audio programming, and has given a voice to the unheard. This course is an introduction to the fundamentals and techniques of podcasting and video broadcasting for the Internet. Students will learn the fundamentals of audio and video production and editing, and will use the new Rutgers-Camden state-of-the-art radio station as a lab for the course. The class will produce non-fiction and fiction programs and broadcast pre-recorded and live events via Internet streaming.

 

50:209:303 Special Topics in DS: What Comes After Print? 
James Brown
T 6:00-8:50pm

In their edited collection Comparative Textual Media, Katherine Hayles and Jessica Pressman argue that “as the era of print is passing, it is possible once again to see print in a comparative context with other textual media.” What does it mean to rethink the work of English Studies through the lens of comparative textual studies? How do we compose and compare text, image, and sound? What methods of arguing, writing, and critique are available? Which existing methods are useful for a comparative approach, and which should be remixed and augmented? In this class, we will both make and critique digital objects as we consider how our research methods should shift in the waning days of print.
