Sequence Two

Welcome to Sequence Two!  Now that we have a foundation in DH and its politics we are ready to read through the course novel, Danielewski’s House of Leaves.  This novel will be tough for some of us, while it will actually be a quick, exciting read for others.  But we pace ourselves, reading about 20-25 pages of text per night. These readings in fiction are paired with some pretty deep philosophy as we consider the post-modern text. We will have three forum posts, three blog options, and one essay in this sequence.
