How have digital/interactive technologies restructured our economic and cultural landscape? In what ways have digital technologies inserted themselves into our social fabric and transformed our political landscape? How have interactive technologies affected our cognitive processes and social skills? This course explores the ways in which digital technologies and interactive technologies are fundamentally restructuring our social, political, economic, and cultural experiences. Students will engage in theoretical discourse, and will be challenged to think critically about how these technologies impact culture and/or can be employed a means of affecting change.
