COMM 208H - Technology And Society


Credits: Four (4)
Prerequisite: Membership in Bascom Honors Program
Is technology making our lives better or harming us in irreparable ways? What are the ways that technology has made our workplaces better? In what ways has it made us feel more overwhelmed than ever at work? How can we incorporate technology into our lives in measured, healthy ways? In this class, we will explore the latest writings about technology from many great contemporaries writing about its role in our life. We will have several formal and informal debates where we will take opposing views and flush out the arguments that seek to answer some of the biggest questions of our time.
