This course explores how emerging digital technologies alternately enhance and obstruct the pursuit of democratic values, broadly conceived. We examine the history and meaning of terms like democracy and freedom in the context of both politics (campaigns, voting, legislation) and culture (music, entertainment, and the arts); the history of computers and the Internet; and the impact of digital media on international politics and professional journalism. Prereq: CMN 455 with a C or better, or by permission.
