CUL2530J – Culture,Technology and Silicon Valley


Irene Wei

Credits: 3 credits



This course examines writings by selected Western critics of a society that no longer merely uses technology as a support system but instead is shaped by it–with consequences for how people redefine sociability, art, education, intelligence, and truth. Lectures and discussions will focus on understanding the basic terms of ongoing debates about technology rather than on taking sides. Course materials also include short films.
