STS 3173 Hypermedia in Context

3 Credits
This course investigates precursors to new media, revealing the possibilities and limitations of today’s incarnations. Searching analog media for examples of supposedly new technologies like associative thinking, multimedia, and participatory design, we will examine the social and economic structures that allow for such tools to arise and to determine what exactly is new in new media. Further, we consider how we can use the concept of antecedent to critique present manifestations of media and how we can incorporate ideas from the past into the present while avoiding homologies.

Prerequisite(s): Completion of first year writing requirements, and one Level 2 STS Cluster Humanities and Social Sciences Elective.
Note: Satisfies a Humanities and Social Sciences Elective.
