Course Description: The internet is now a familiar part of everyday life. But what exactly is the Internet? What is it used for? And how is it implicated in the transformation of society, culture, community and even the sense of identity? This course examines these and other critical questions in exploring the complex interplay between the technical and social dimensions of the internet. Among the topics students cover are the emergence of new forms of media culture, art, and commerce online, the nature and limitations of virtual communities and the implications for personal identity and intimacy, and the complex legal, ethical, and political issues which arise through activity on the internet. Tutorials and lectures equip students with the knowledge needed to critically appraise the interrelations between the internet and society, and laboratories are used to build basic technical skills. Students taking this course also have “hands-on” experience in participating in an online community.
