Science Fiction Virtual Reality:  Assignments




Each class member is responsible for submitting a journal entry, one to two pages, for each reading and viewing. In addition to these journal entries, each class member is responsible for a five-page analytical paper and a ten-page research paper. Throughout the Fall 1996 semester, the class has been asked to write beastiaries in conjunction with William Gibson's trilogy and to predict the future of virtual reality. Through these writing exercises, we hope to become better writers, better speakers, better debators, and better people.
