"How to Do Things with Books and Screens: Digital Pedagogy in Literature Seminars"

How can faculty and graduate student teachers develop and incorporate new digital pedagogy ideas in their traditional face-to-face literature seminars today, without needing much technological expertise or extra support? This talk will discuss specific examples of innovative close reading and collaborative writing exercises, social media activities involving the public, and digital research and writing projects aimed at fostering students' thoughtful and creative engagement with traditional humanities contents and methods online.
