COM 327 - Media and Technology (4 Cr.)

(GCR Humanities and Interdisciplinary Studies area)
We hear every day about how new technologies– particularly digital media– are a powerful force driving change in our society, with consequences good and bad. But what really is the relationship between technology and society? What influence does technology have on our culture, politics, and economy? And vice versa? In this class, we will look closely at histories and theories of technology to examine the hidden workings of media technologies as tools and processes, and their implications for power over information and communication today and in the future. Prerequisites: COM 105 , COM 232, and COM 262, by the beginning of the course; or permission of the instructor. Offered alternate years. Kimball.
