Poetics and Annotation
1:45 PM–3:00 PM Saturday, Jan 5, 2019
Hyatt Regency - Columbus EF
Description: Panelists explore annotations across historical periods, asking what marginalia, footnotes, and other such paratexts can tell us about the dialogic spaces they create, the development of the lyric, and past and current reading practices. Considering both published and unpublished annotations, speakers also think through the challenges and possibilities of annotation in the digital age.

This course takes the nature of experiment as its subject, considering such topics as the art of the novel, poetic form, science fiction, visual art, graphic narratives, and the tech industry. Our case studies begin with two college students, Sylvia Plath’s aspiring writer in her novel The Bell Jar (1963) and Nnedi Okorafor’s STEM heroine in her Afrofuturist novel Binti (2015). We then turn to film adaptations of Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein (1818), Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic (2006), and avant garde poetry and aesthetics from Mina Loy and Laurie Anderson to Cecilia Vicuña. We will also survey the state of gender in the tech industry from Gamergate and Maker Culture to organizations like FemTechNet and Girls Who Code, and discuss The Internet of Women (2016), a collection of essays co-edited by NYIT’s Dean of the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, Dr. Nada Anid. Students in this course will write essays, contribute to a course blog, and complete digital projects.
