Abstract: Is that Smoker’s Cough? And Other Fun Filled Stories Bought to You by Your Favourite Social Networks.
A cough is an annoying interruption, and an uncontrollable and unavoidable part of everyday life. Due to having Cystic Fibrosis, my cough is a large part of my identity. Through fictocriticism, I will explore the abstract metaphor of a cough, presenting it as a hypertextual approach through uses of different social media platforms. This will allow me to creatively explore matters of identity and experience in a multi–layered and more connected way.
