    For most people, the first experience of an institution comes through its paperwork, an experience that is at once banal and totally inescapable/ But for all of its familiarity, we spend very little time thinking about the genres and media of paperwork. This seminar treats bureaucratic genres and media not simply as legacies of inefficient systems or the result of a lack of foresight, but as sites of governance, where material culture, knowledge, and politics meet. Drawing on readings from media studies, book history, history of information technology, science and technology studies (STS), and legal ethnography, we will explore the ways in which institutions come to know and create orders. The course also serves as a research methods seminar in which we will learn to access and evaluate a variety of bureaucratic genres used by cultural scholars of technological and scientific systems such as systems of classified information, research grant reports, and Freedom of Information Act requests.
