Term: WN 2018
Subject: Communication Studies (COMM)
Department: LSA Communication Studies
May be repeated for a maximum of 15 credit(s). May be elected more than once in the same term.
Primary Instructor:

This course explores how the Internet mediates concepts of materiality, identity, community, and space, focusing on critical race theory and weblogs. The readings range across cyberculture studies, informatics, technology studies, and critical theory. My goal is twofold: encourage students to interrogate 'digital duality', or whether online and offline experiences are so different, as well as to decenter 'norms' of internet practices and ideologies.

Intended Audience:

GRADUATE students only
