Course description

This FYS course will focus on the nature and impact of technology on society, paying particular attention to computing while using previous technological advances as a basis for comparison. We will consider the social, political, historic, economic and philosophic contexts that both shaped and have been shaped by technological change. Students will explore the emerging field of technology and society studies and will learn techniques borrowed from sociology, psychology, and philosophy. (Freshman Standing)
