The course explores how written vs. oral societies perceive and construct reality by means of linguistic, philosophical, and literary texts. After exploring the defining characteristics of written and oral language (Ong), we apply these traits to the language of the Internet to define this new medium in linguistic terms. The latter part of the course addresses how the Internet in its various forms and functions is altering our perception of reality, our expectations and needs as well as our cognitive and social abilities. Readings address the effects of the Internet and social media on education, social behavior (cyberbullying, gaming, relationships), and democracy (wikileaks, Anonymous, social media revolutions) as well as the social and cultural capital associated with the new technologies (Bourdieu).
