New media are a defining feature of 21st-century society, from the internet to social networking sites. But what makes new media "new"? How do new media affect existing social norms, including notions of intimacy, privacy, community, and identity? This course considers the concept of new media from a historical and cultural perspective, examining the social construction of technology, the idea of technological progress, and comparative studies of both "old" and "new" media. Prereq: CMN 455, CMN 456, CMN 457; two 500-level CMN.
