AP/COMN3550 3.0 A: Digital Media and Culture
Calendar Description / Prerequisite / Co-Requisite
Examines the origins and development of forms of digital media and culture with particular emphasis on how they differ from pre-digital or analog cultural forms. Upon establishing our theoretical foundations for considering new media as technology and culture, we investigate the historical development of digital technology and some of the transformative effects it has had, and continues to have, on previous forms of communication. Seminar discussions address themes such as identity, privacy, hardware/software, education, journalism, news, and interactivity, in relation to topics such as hypermedia, cyberspace, satellites, digital telephony, digital radio/music, digital photography/video, and digital literacy.
