In-class/online hybrid. In-class meetings as scheduled.
Description
It's the year 2019. There is no doubt that we are in the midst of the Information Age, the Digital Age, the Era of Big Data, the Social Networking Revolution, or whatever new moniker the next writer bestows on contemporary America. Since this course began eight years ago, we have already experienced pivotal moments in the coding of digital America, and we will continue to watch as new inventions, research, and revelations shape our lives. The reach of digital America extends far beyond the familiar browser of your MacBook Pro, beyond your Facebook page, and your favorite streaming service. Digitization and digital culture is changing the fundamental structure of finance, diplomacy, war, and democracy. Digital culture is changing the way we understand gender, music, and literature and the arts. The shift to binary in the 20th century has set the foundation of a fundamentally different 21st century that extends far beyond the modern conveniences of mobile computing. Our brains are creating new neural maps to manage the landscape, and we are questioning the very essence of what it means to be human in this digital world. Understanding the recent, yet often obscured, history of digital culture will help us critique contemporary digital life. The debates are fierce and the terrain is familiar... yet strange. What does it mean to be a global superpower in the digital age? Is digital technology inherently democratic? How do network technologies change cultures and cultural practices? Do we want these changes? Do we have a choice in the matter?
