The Cyberspace, Hypertext, and Critical Theory Web: An Introduction

George P. Landow, Professor of English and Art History, Brown University

Lora Schwartz, a student in English 111, Spring 1998, has created an introductory tour of the site that you may wish to follow.

Like the Victorian and Postcolonial Literature webs, this collection of interlinked materials, which by April 1998 has grown to include some 7,000 documents and images, began as an Intermedia web that supported courses taught at Brown University. In 1992 all materials were transferred to Eastgate Systems's Storyspace and then, in 1995, to html.

The great majority of the materials in the Cyberspace Web the web consists of student projects from my courses on Hypertext and Literary Theory and Cyberspace, Virtual Reality, and Critical Theory, but people from outside Brown have also added materials and suggestions.

Contributions, suggestions, and corrections are always welcome. If you'd like to make one, please contact me at
