Computational Media, Arts & Cultures Proseminar

LIT 621S

This course is an introduction to scholarship at the nexus of theory and practice. It includes theoretical readings in computational media, design, and critique, and focuses on how these inform and provide critical context for practice-based modes of learning and production. Students will learn about various areas of computational media theory and culture, including media archaeology, data and visualization, computation and culture, database and narrative, and data-mining and big data. Students will explore how theoretical approaches can guide and challenge practical work in media design. Students will be oriented to Media Labs and other computationally-based projects around campus. Instructor: Staff
