From young Internet users in Ghana's Internet cafe to American teenagers to Chinese factory workers assembling iPhones, and Indian coders migrating to Australia, this course exposes you to the multifaceted lived experiences under global digital capitalism while grounding them in the history and theory of capitalism as an uneven world system. The design of this course encourages you to think critically about what's new and not so new about capitalism in its contemporary digital/neoliberal phase. It helps identify the on-going technology-driven social transformations on a global scale. Prereq: CMN 455, CMN 456, CMN 457 & two 500-level CMN courses.
