    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: This course integrates literary study of contemporary texts with archival theory and practice. The course texts include a pulp thriller, a work of “serious” literary fiction, a graphic novel, and an ephemeral electronic book; embodying a variety of forms, they address and enact the “concept of ‘the archive.’” As students interrogate the relation between archival formations and textual materiality, they gain fluency in a set of questions which they then transfer to digital projects: a class blog and a digital archive of sci-fi fanzines made from a library collection. Students thus engage with the challenges of mediation and curation both as consumers of literature and as producers of literary history.
