Description:
The network has become the dominant cultural logic of our time with new societal conditions spurred by the maturing of the internet and mobile platforms. In this class we ask: what tools can we use to study the place of networked media in society? What historical precedents might inform our evaluation of networked media? How is transnationality and the nature of audience for media impacted by the network? How can social media enable the formation of community? How is identity performed in/with networked media? How are constructions of youth, gender, race, ethnicity, and sexuality mediated through social media technologies? Can social media technologies be a vehicle for political activism? What are the commercial uses of social media? What are the ethical issues associated with distributed media technologies? Is it possible to refuse social media?
