Welcome to the first and longest running website maintained by a professor at Georgetown University.
I set up the first website at Georgetown in , and began developing websites for courses in When I launched the CCT Program in , I began developing individual sites for each graduate course with web syllabi, readings, and lecture notes, and this site has become my archive of courses, lectures, essays, and presentations for students and those interested in the fields I work in.
My teaching philosophy entails using the Web to implement real-time teaching: moving students out of the black box of the classroom and into a world of personal inquiry and practice.
My teaching and research interests span several fields and disciplines: theory and philosophy of technology and culture; semiotics, linguistics, and philosophy of language; computation and symbolic cognition; media and communication theory and history; art theory and history; and intersections in art, music, film, and visual culture.
This site provides links to my course syllabi, lectures and presentations, and published work for use by all students and anyone interested in my various projects. Courses and Seminars.
Course Blogs and Student Work. I now maintain Wordpress sites for student seminar work after years of managing a Seminar Wiki site.
If You're an Educator
This platform enables student discussions and contributions to the real-time knowledge-building purpose of seminars in a peer-dialog context, and allows students to publish rich-content essays and final research projects. Student work is accessible on the Web, indexed by Google and other Web indexing sites.
Postmodernism in Film
The platform provides a fixed URL for reference and use by students in future professional work. A guide for structuring your argument in essays and theses, and supporting your writing with authoritative sources in any medium, whether writing traditional "papers" or rich media essays on the Web. I thought of a labyrinth of labyrinths, of one sinuous spreading labyrinth that would encompass the past and the future and in some way involve the stars.

Nothing conclusive has yet taken place in the world, the ultimate word of the world and about the world has not yet been spoken, the world is open and free, everything is still in the future and will always be in the future. The valuable truth is not the detached one, but the one that goes toward enlarging the system of what is already known.
