WAL: Video Games and Literature
Knowledge-Values Courses: Writing About Literature
This course focuses on the relationship between video games and literature. Though some have suggested video games supposedly threaten the long-term future of reading good literature, the two have much more in common than one would first expect. Students in this course will encounter games that aspire to be literature and literature that aspires to be game-like as well as games about writing fiction and fiction about playing games, as they explore how these different narrative media conceive of each other.
