News: Hypertext and Teaching

Robert Kendall, poet and author of A Life Set For Two, is teaching Electronic Poetry and Fiction this spring through the New School's Online University. Classes begin on 18 March.

Take a six-week writing course at trAce Writing School for just 100 pounds sterling. That's 1/3 off the regular price! But act now: the offer is only good for the first 50 students to sign up for any course in Series 4, starting 8th October 2001. Book by September 30th. Places are available in courses on Web site design, publishing, children's fiction, travel writing, animated poetry, screenwriting, teaching and managing Web-based creative writing projects, short fiction, novel writing, and more.

Poet Robert Kendall, author of A Life Set for Two, is teaching a new online class, Electronic Poetry and Fiction, through the New School this fall. In addition to hypertext, the syllabus includes animated poetry and Flash. The course runs Oct. 22 - Dec. 21, 2001." Further information is available at Wordcircuits.

In June 2001, Carolyn Guertin will teach a seminar called Women Writing/Speaking Cyberfeminism at the University of Alberta.

Stanford University's Program of Continuing Studies will offer a workshop in electronic literature this spring. The class will be team-taught by Rob Kendall, author of A Life Set for Two, and Rich Holeton, author of Figurski at Findhorn on Acid (forthcoming very soon from Eastgate Systems - watch this space!). For details, check out Rob Kendall's course page. Prospective students should register through the Continuing Studies Program.

Domenico Fiormonte's course on electronic writing at the Universitá degli Studi di Roma (Tor Vergata) contains a considerable hypertext component. The syllabus is available on-line. In Italian.


Adrian Peever of Barry University is teaching an upper level undergraduate humanities course, Writing on the Internet, this semester. Peever writes,

"Students in this course distinguish traditional text documents from e-texts and hypertexts, examining the stylistic consequences of these formal distinctions. The class emphasizes the sense that traditional notions of authorship and authority are reconstituted by the contemporary writing environment, and students apply their findings via the creation of original hypertext documents both individually and in collaboration with their peers. Students also read and critique hypertext articles and fiction, in particular Michael Joyce's classic of hypertext fiction afternoon, a story.

Alan Liu's course on HyperLiterature at UCSB has a notable reading list.

Joe Lambert and Nina Mullen open a new laboratory for the Center for Digital Storytelling, long a mecca for personal digital filmakers, on July 1 at 1803 Martin Luther King, Jr Way, in Berkeley, California. They're also teaming with Prof. Maggie Sokolik in College Writing 108.

Wayne MacPhail sends interesting examples of a class exercise from his course on hypertext narrative at the Canadian Screen Training Center. The students created two hypertext adaptations of McPhail's short story, Signals; the results feel like hypertexts -- quite an accomplishment.

Jay Clayton (Vanderbilt) explores issues that arose in using Shelley Jackson's Patchwork Girl, Tom Stoppard's Arcadia, and Gibson and Sterling's The Difference Engine in the teaching modern rewritings of the Romantics.

"Clayton looks at the appearance of Romantic heroes and writing in contemporary texts... Paying explicit attention to the context of our activity as students and teachers of Romanticism makes visible, to quote Clayton again, the "odd, unsettling continuities--as well as gaping disjunctions"-- between the Romantic era and our postmodern scene of instruction.

Gerald Lucas offers an interesting discussion of teaching Joyce's afternoon, a story, to an upper-level undergraduate literature class.

"Through frustration, with persistence, we will learn, and maybe, because of this fact, the negatives are also positives." Indeed, Afternoon, if taken seriously and persistently, may help students develop the necessary skills for critical and thoughtful reading. I taught Afternoon at the end of the semester this year, but I think I'll begin next semester with it as an exercise in the active engagement of the text.

Writing in English Matters, Lesley G. Smith describes an end-of-semester encounter between a class of 28 literature students and Shelley Jackson's hypertext, Patchwork Girl. She describes the confrontation (students had previously studied Eliot, DeLillo, and Lowell) as A Small Odyssey, and her hypertext essay is extremely interesting.Many students hated the hypertext at first, but later found it extremely rewarding; intensive classroom collaboration seems to have been the key. "[Two students] mentioned how Jackson's rewriting of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein gifted voice to the voiceless and shifted the power of narration from the creator to the created. In many ways they might have been describing their own experiences as they gained critical voice..."

Jonathan Smith's essay, "Is There a Hypertext In This Class", has a new URL. In this thorough and insightful essay, Smith describes two courses at the University of Michigan/Dearborn that made extensive use of hypertexts, including The Dickens Web and The In Memoriam Web. Smith details the impact of hypertext assignments on teaching strategies, on the way students write about literature, and on the instructor's own strategies for curriculum.

Understanding A Vision: What is Hypertext? is an interesting student project from Sadie Cornell at Tidewater Community College. Cornell and her advisor, Donna Reiss, review the history of hypertext and the place of literary hypertexts in English composition and literary classes.

Hypertext poet Robert Kendall (A Life Set for Two) will be teaching an advanced class in hypertext poetry and fiction for the New School's remote learning program this fall.

Susan Schreibman describes the pleasures and pitfalls of incorporating hypertext writing into a hypertext theory course in Critics and Receptionists: Students as Knowledge Providers.

Hypertext Reading & Writing
David S. Miall

"We examine critically the arguments for the postmodern status of hypertext, and consider to what extent such accounts of electronic textuality agree with what is known about writing and reading, both theoretically and empirically. We will also study some of the pedagogical evaluations of hypertexts in order to assess their role in teaching and learning. | home page

Electronic Fiction
Wes Chapman

First offered in 1993. The instructor recalls that a "requirement in both courses was for each student to write a substantial hypertext of his or her own. I gave students the option of writing either a fiction (or poem) or a work of criticism... Interestingly, most students elected to write fictions--even students who had never written creatively before and had no particular interest in ever writing fiction again. Perhaps this simply says something about the need to bring storytelling into pedagogy in general, but I also feel that students were more attracted to writing hypertext fiction than they would have been to writing print fiction. I don't know how to explain this. Perhaps it has something to do with the sudden liberation from expected norms."

Hypertext Poetry and Fiction
Robert Kendall

A remote-learning class, offered through the Internet and taught by Eastgate writer Robert Kendall, author of A Life Set For Two.

Each class includes on-line guest "appearances" by two notable figures in hypertext literature, and each term the class studies a hypertext by one of these guests. The class has been running since 1995 and is offered every spring and fall, and often in the summer. New York Magazine selected it as one of "The City's Best Classes for Adults."

Alumni include Deena Larsen, author of Marble Springs, Bill Bly, author of We Descend, Rosemary Passantino, and many other notable hypertext writers.

School of Continuing Education
Electron Lit: Hypertext Fiction and Poetry
Bill Bly

The dawn of the computer age has seen the emergence of a new genre of literature, hypertext - non-linear fiction and poetry created specifically to be read on a computer. Hypertext literature comes in all shapes and sizes, from Judy Malloy's Its Name Was Penelope, a small (196 Kbytes) stand-alone poetry collection, to John McDaid's Uncle Buddy's Phantom Funhouse, which comes in a box containing five floppy disks, two cassette tapes, a sheaf of publisher's page proofs, and a "Getting Started" manual.

In this class, students will explore several examples of hypertext literature, make a semi-formal presentation of a published hypertext they have read, write and present a formal paper on an important issue in the field, and contribute to the development of a World Wide Web site for the class. In addition, on-line conferences will be held with two hypertext authors, to discuss their experiences in the "real world" of hypertext, and to answer student questions.

Electronic Writing

Michael Groden

This course will look at two print novels and three short electronic hypertext fictions in terms of their physical features as well as their words. An elaborate Web-based edition of Pride and Prejudice can be usefully compared to a paperback version. Ulysses, a work very much aware of print's opportunities and limitations, can be compared to my hypermedia version. The hypertexts now seem most interesting as problems: do their physical attributes overwhelm the content? is there meaningful content at all or only form and structure? We will also look at several critics and theorists who discuss literary works in terms of their physicality or their material conditions of production. A schedule and syllabus, plus links and related materials, are available at the course Web site .

The course will consider relations between hypertext and literature in four areas: 1) proto-hypertexts, or some print-based works that prefigure hypertext (Jorge-Luis Borges, "The Garden of Forking Paths," "The Library of Babel," and "Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote"; James Joyce, Ulysses (excerpts); Vladimir Nabokov, Pale Fire; and Italo Calvino, If on A Winter's Night a Traveller; 2) examples of recent hypertext fiction (Michael Joyce, "Afternoon"; Carolyn Guyer, "Quibbling"; Shelley Jackson, "Patchwork Girl"); 3) print-based and hypertextual theories of hypertext (selections from Myron Tuman's collection, Literacy Online, and other photocopied essays; and 4) discussions of the relations between literary works and technology (excerpts from Jerome McGann, The Textual Condition; Walter J. Ong, Orality and Literacy). A schedule and syllabus, plus links and related materials, are available at the course Web site .
