O’Gorman course: running posthuman

Bodies/Technologies II – Schedule
Author of E-crit (see previous posting), here is the syllabus for O’Gorman’s recent course:
“While tech corporations sing the praises of our increasingly “mobile” way of life, America is actually growing more immobile each day. . . Perhaps the single greatest cause of this immobility is the screen interface for TV’s and computers. . . This course asks you to explore strategies for re-embodying information. That is, how can the body can be reintegrated into communications technology? We will answer this question by developing experimental projects that draw on the metaphor of “running.”
Also fun because he uses “class content time” to teach them several apps (hooray) and offers the opportunity to display good final projects in a “real life” venue.
