How do we play at stories? How do we use stories to play?This course investigates the relationship between narrative and play, in games and in literature. We explore the media histories, design theories, and many technologies of interactive experiences, focusing on where literary and narrative arts intersect with interactive media and game design. When we consider video games, apps, interactive films, websites, avant-garde writing, childrens literature, and more… how have games/books changed the possibilities of narrative as it is read, written, or played?

For those who declared in Fall 2023 or later, this course can fulfill one of two subject area requirements for the English major:
