STS 4616

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This course seeks to explore the intersections of corruption and environmental media. We will be analyzing films and other media (including artworks and literary texts) that deal with the environmental effects of governmental and corporate corruption. The course will investigate the epistemological and phenomenological dimensions of mediation and corruption through an eco-critical lens. We shall examine corruption as contagion at both biological (communicable diseases) and informational (glitches, computer viruses) levels.

When Offered Fall.
