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.
