As the twentieth century witnessed the rise of film and visual media, the twenty-first century is currently witnessing the rise of video games and other such interactive media as a narrative and art form that overlaps in its scope and ambitions with the literary realm. In many language and literature departments across the globe, film is now firmly ensconced in the curriculum; video games and interactive media have already been granted their own departments at numerous larger institutions and will increasingly fall under the purview of language and literature departments at smaller schools.

Boosted by Barak Obama’s revolutionary usage of social media in 2008 to mobilize young voters and energize a new party base, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign also sought to make strategic use of social media platforms—as did her opponent’s, with dramatically different results. In 2019, rising political star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been acknowledged as a master of social media for her usage of Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram—platforms where her followers number in the millions. For AOC, strategic utilization of social media in a limited congressional district campaign led directly to national prominence and increased presence within traditional print and television media platforms for her policy propositions.
