    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Helen Burgess teaches her students that each version of the Shakespeare sonnet in this four-part “conversion” assignment attends to different interfaces of the same source text. Learning outcomes are measured in how well the student articulates poetic interpretation as materialized in the four interface outputs. The four-part process asks students to remediate the sonnet as 1) visual representation; 2) an object comprised of fourteen parts (each sonnet line is converted into an object); 3) a decomposition of someone else’s composition; and 4) a computer program that builds a sonnet when it’s executed. This exercise converts the sonnet into a computational object, building upon the impressionistic reading of the visual remediation, and layers it with the procedural thinking necessary to make it, finally, an object that is machine readable. As Alexander Galloway observes in The Interface Effect, “the edges of art always make reference to the medium itself” (47).
