Annotating

Hi everybody. At the end of our last class, Salia asked a great question, about what kinds of details you should be marking when you annotate our readings. Here are some suggestions:

  • Gestures toward defining what it means to be human–or the complexities of representing the human.
  • Signs of intertextuality, including quotations or allusions from other texts; references to other writers; conventions of a literary tradition; images or language shared with other texts; or anything that feels like an echo of another text.
  • Any detail that seems related to conversations we’ve had.
  • Details you find interesting, for whatever reason.
