This spring I am scheduled to teach an extended studies credit course at Alberta College of Art + Design:  ENGL217: Introduction to Narrative ENGL217 is dedicated to the exploration of the potential of found and crafted narrative – how narrative and story emerges from alternate media, is crafted by the the reader and how it can be a physical, graphic process-based activity. Students will create assignments in dialogue with Jonathan Ball’s Ex Machina, Jorge Luis Borges’ Labyrinths, Kate Briggs’ The Nabokov Paper, Sophie Calle’s The Address Book and Tom Phillip’s A Humument. The course is designed to push boundaries and explore the edges of the map and will include public-space work, discussions around the possibility of chose-your-own-adventures, digital text generation and embedded literature. extn_calendar_ss_15_Page_34 ENROLL TODAY!
