- Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: With inspiration and theoretical background from Kenneth Goldsmith’s “uncreative writing,” Rachael Sullivan asked her undergraduate students in Information Overload: Literature and Contemporary Life to compose poetry from found texts online, imitating a popular image-macro form. She showcases examples of “Internet literature,” where “Everything on the list either  responds to internet culture as a theme,  uses features of the internet (such as hyperlinking) as literary techniques, or  depends on the internet as a distribution platform” (Sullivan). By composing their own “Internet poetry” from language found online, students used an iterative process to recontextualize and reconsider issues of information overload. This resource is just one way instructors could have students iterate on found language online.
