LS 661 - Exploring Digital Culture

(3.00 cr.)

Since the early 1990s, the Internet has emerged as a powerful new platform for communication. Students investigate the social, political, cultural, intellectual, and economic impact of new communication services such as Facebook, Twitter, blogging, Second Life, the World Wide Web, and others. Discussions address such critical issues as privacy, cyber-bullying and civility, identify theft and security, free speech, and more. They also assess the way the Internet and its applications have influenced the way we see ourselves and others, the way we interact, and even the way we think. The class is conducted primarily online. No expertise in the specific internet applications examined or used is required.
