IS390RGO - Race Gender and Info TechMon, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmOnlineOnline course meeting synchronously (during set days/times listed on schedule), with remaining work completed online asynchronously. In this course we will critically examine the ways in which information and communication technologies (ICTs) are shaped by -- and help to shape -- social relations of race and gender; and we will extend our review to other categories of identity and exclusion as well, such as age, ability, geography and ethnicity. We will also explore the various benefits and burdens of the "information society" and how these are socially distributed, and conduct case-studies of policies, practices, and programs designed to enhance opportunities and/or mitigate disadvantages through the creative or disruptive use of ICTs.
