DMS 331 Social and Mobile Media
staff :: T/TH 3 – 4:50pm :: CFA244
This course is an investigation into mobile and social networks. It will take a bottom-up approach, initially focusing on the infrastructure of mobile networks and the development of online social networks historically. Students will learn to identify network infrastructure in the built environment and will gain hands-on experience with historically significant and alternative forms of online communication.
This knowledge of our place in history and the basic functioning of networks will stand us in good stead to analyze modern social networks. The class will survey mobile and online culture on a global scale across a variety of platforms, including notable artworks that engage with the topic.
