IHSS 1210 - Information in History and Society

What is the relationship between information, information technology, and culture? How do we acquire, organize and share our understandings of the world? How has this been done differently in different time periods and in different cultural contexts? Through an analysis of a broad spectrum of information technologies, from the printing press and early maps, to telephone, television, computers and the Internet, the goal of this course is to come to a deeper, more critical understanding of these questions and their answers. This is a communication-intensive course.

When Offered: Offered fall term.

Credit Hours: 4
