TEL- T585
New Media and Interactivity

This seminar is an investigation of the history, theory and practice
of newer media, technology and fundamental concepts like
interactivity.

T585 is an exploration and analysis of newborn media and technology
and relevant notions like that of interactivity, with a focus on
game studies and the theoretics of play.  The seminar will proceed
through the examination of the texts of both historical and recent
flowerings of the theory, research and practice of artists,
designers, researchers, theoreticians, technologists, writers and
more.   The course will examine both the current implementation of
their ideas, as well as important Frankenstein-like notions of new
media that have yet to find a happy home.
