Here are the materials for my course from this past fall on McLuhan, Flusser, and Stiegler. The course was a senior capstone seminar (Critical Thinking in English Studies). This was difficult material and the students in the class responded well. I include here the syllabus, the reading schedule, and the assignment for the final project which produced some outstanding work. For example: a painting in response to Flusser.
