STS 1201

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

This course investigates the ethical, legal, and social foundations of information. Through lectures, readings, and independent projects, the class will learn to analyze and engage key challenges ranging from privacy in big data and ubiquitous computing environments, to the nature of property, organization, collaboration, and innovation in an increasingly networked world. With cases drawn from the fields of science, health care, education, politics, culture, and international development, and theories and methods from across the humanities and social sciences (law, philosophy, cultural studies, sociology, organizations, and several others) this course will teach students to engage critically and strategically with the worlds of information and technology around them.

When Offered Fall.
