Culture and Norms in the Information Society: Identity, Gender and Social Interaction (DIKULT 106, Fall 2014)

Abstract (in English): 

The course is divided into three thematic modules. Each module consists of six lectures and one assignment. After each module students have a week to write a 1000 word draft paper. The following week the next module’s lectures begin, and students will receive feedback on their paper. They will choose two of their drafts to revise and expand to two 2000 word papers that they will hand in as your portfolio. Their grade for the course depends on the assessment of this final portfolio.

Module 1: Digital Self-Representations (Jill Walker Rettberg)
Module 2: Identity Online (Kathi Inman Berens, Fulbright Scholar visiting from Univ. of Southern California)
Module 3: Digital Media Ethics (Álvaro Seiça)
