Courses

State University of New York-Canton, 2015-present
English 270 Writing, Games, and New Media: This course explores the creative practices                       and theories of writing in new media through graphic narratives, visual                                     images, maps, and games. Students will learn digital literary and communication                   skills by utilizing industry design frames like CAT, experience design,                                       information design, information architecture. Exploring the stories and maps of                     our own lives as well as  local New York archives, we will learn methods for                             thinking and living in the 21st century while contributing to the future of the                           New York experience.
English 314 Digital Graphic Narratives: This course asks how graphic narratives shift from                    print to digital medium. In order to answer this question, students explore the                        literary, architectural, interactive, and design elements of graphic narratives by                      reading and engaging novels, online memoirs, and narrative games written from                    the 1970s to the present. Students critique several germinal graphic works and                      then apply their knowledge of this visual medium to create their own                                        graphic narratives. The class will design original graphic works in various                                software platforms (Google Earth, Comic Life, InDesign, Pixton, Comic Maker)                      using both literary and design frameworks.
