HI-UY 2534 History of Computing

4 Credits
This is a course about the history of the Computer Revolution and its causes, consequences, and meanings for modern society. Our goal is to provide students with the tools necessary for critically evaluating claims made about the role and in uence of computer technology in modern social, economic, and political life. By the end of the course, the students will have developed a nuanced understanding of the relationship between technology and society that moves beyond simplistic claims that “the computer changes everything” to encompass models of innovation that include not only technological invention but also social, legal, and economic developments as well.

Prerequisite(s): EXPOS-UA 1
