COMM 359 - DIGITAL CULTURE
FORMERLY CNTP-350: This course will take a critical look at the ways in which digital technology changes how we create, communicate and build culture. We will look at the historical roots of the procedures of the digital world – how did remix grow out of hip hop and dj culture in the Bronx? How does the architecture of cyberspace push against existing social, economic and political norms? We will delve into the critical issues raised as our creative output – from writing to image-making to music – moves into the realm of the circuit. Digital media has provided the opportunity, as no other technology has before, for working across disciplines. As creative endeavor moves from physically-based media into the digital realm, it becomes easier to combine, and to collaborate over distance through digital networks. What are the precedents? What are the implications? We will explore the roots of digital media and digital culture by examining its precedents in different cultures throughout history.
