Why do digital assistants have women's voices? Are highways racist? This course explores the influence of gender and race on communication technologies. Drawing on communication, gender studies, critical race studies, and science and technology studies, this class engages in a social examination of everyday technologies. We examine the historical relationship between gender, race, and technology and understand how design decisions influence the meanings of communication tools. Students are required to have taken two 500 level CMN courses (C-) prior to this course, unless granted instructor permission.
