Welcome. This is a blog for American Literary Traditions, a course being offered at the University of Pittsburgh during the Spring of 2011. The posts you will find here are by students participating in this class. The subtitle and theme of this course is “The American Disaster: Network Subjectivities and Apocalyptic Topologies.” Over the course of the semester we will be reading the following texts, and students will be responding to them.
In addition, we will also be playing World of Warcraft for two weeks during the semester.
