2/26: Convergent Media/Constructionism

Please post a question on the readings as a comment below. You can ask a question related to either the Digital Media Handbook or the Resnick book. Most of the class discussion will probably focus on Resnick. Also come prepared to discuss Frankenstein in its many incarnations (most recently with Aaron Eckhart as the monster).

Here are some pics of Frankenstein in comic book form by the amazing Mike Kaluta. Click the pic to get a larger version for reading and viewing.
