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 Considering both published and unpublished annotations, speakers also think through the challenges and possibilities of annotation in the digital age.

ICLT 331: Women, Technology, and Art
Summer 2018, Session III (Online)
Fall 2018 (Blended), Old Westbury Campus
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.
Girl Powered Art and Technology
An Exhibition by Students in ICLT 300: Women, Technology, and Art
This exhibition showcases print, digital, and material artifacts that interpret the ways that women have engaged art and power in their work. It is divided into three sections, corresponding to texts we discussed addressing the influence of Mary Shelley’s classic novel Frankenstein (1818), Marjane Satrapi’s graphic novel Persepolis (2000), and Nnedi Okorafor’s science fiction novel Binti (2015). Each of these writers take on humanity and technology differently and the projects students have created consider how they do so in new ways. As a result, our exhibition Girl Powered Art and Technology captures women’s textual and digital impact on society.
The purpose of this exhibition is to depict the roles women have had in shaping technology and art. Representing different cultures and time periods, each of the writers we read demonstrates innovative thinking that inspired our own.
