In its short life, the Internet has become a technology and cultural forum of extraordinary complexity. This freshman seminar will explore in depth the historical development of the Internet as well as the many social, political, aesthetic, and economic implications it opens up as a medium for communication, art, and commerce. Weekly discussions will introduce students to the Internet’s origins, to key theories for analyzing cultural life online, and to contemporary issues facing the Internet and its users. We'll study everything from the birth of computers and the World Wide Web to 90s "cyberspace" and early Internet shopping to the current culture of social media, memes, selfies, likes, swipes, and followers. We'll also debate key issues that affect your daily life online, like privacy and surveillance, anonymity, digital citizenship, big data, and the future of mobile networked media.
