About this Unit
In this unit students create their own hypertext (electronically linked) fiction. They are introduced to an e-learning environment using the network platform WebCT and the creative writing program Storyspace. The unit explores and experiments with aspects of fiction, such as plot, narrative, genre and character in the context of the electronic medium of hypertext. It also considers the history and theory of hypertext writing, including postmodern and poststructuralist theories of text and of the subject, and the new rhetoric and stylistics of hypertext. Students also critically evaluate existing on-line hypertext fiction.
