    This course will explore the history and theory immersion in digital media. With the emergence of Virtual Reality technologies in the 1980s, designers and programmers posited a new ideal of immersive media: a perceptually overwhelming experience in which the distinction between the physical and digital world disappeared. Covering media technologies from VR to video games to digital cinema, this course will examine the history of immersive media to reconsider what is new about digital immersion.
