The course will use various hypertext materials--documents composed of electronically linked texts and images -- both (1) to provide a collaborative work environment, (2) to contextualize the works read, and (3) to replace reserve reading. The course will have occasional lab sessions in the CIT, particularly near the beginning of the semester, to familiarize the students with using these materials. No previous experience with a computer is necessary, though those who have used a computer mouse will probably find using the hypertext materials particularly easy. Written exercises consist of several essays during the term and a term paper in which students create their own synthesis of the course.
