Section: A

CRN: 5257

Credits: 3

This course analyzes the impact of technology in society, pointing out the ways in which the development and introduction of new technologies not only transforms their surroundings, but also modifies existing social values and relations, and creates new ones. Technological innovation is seldom ideologically neutral, and many times provokes profound social transformations, often in unintended ways. We also analyze the role of information technologies as a crucial factor in the spread of ideas.

Open to: University undergraduate degree students, freshman and sophomores only. Pre-requisite(s): first-year university writing course and at least one prior history or methods course in art, media, film, or visual culture.
