While I've only gotten through the Hypertext and Internet, Writing & Society papers and have barely made a dent in the 640-or-so page stack of Senior Seminar essays, I've got to say I'm proud of the work my students did this semester, particularly in the Senior Seminar in Postmodernism. Writing a 30 page critical paper is no mean feat, something that few literature students do before grad school, and many of the papers I've read so far are intelligent and nuanced discussions of some difficult novels. The Hypertext stack also included some very good work, perhaps enough that we might be able to put together a contribution to Matt Kirschenbaum's E-Lit Up Close feature at the hypertext site Word Circuits. I'm also planning on putting togther a CD-ROM anthology of the senior seminar papers in .pdf format.
