Term: Spring 2024 - Full Term (01/23/2024 - 05/06/2024)
Grade Mode: Letter Grading
Class Size:   8  
CRN: 53027
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.

Course Title & Description: Civil Discourse & Democracy - From our classrooms to our social media feeds, and our living rooms to our legislature, the vibrancy of our democracy hinges on how we talk about issues, problems, and decisions that impact our communities. And yet, these conversations are often difficult and make it tough to work well together.  We will contemplate the question: How do we talk about issues we are concerned about in ways that encourage more meaningful engagement? We will examine civil discourse in practice, including the role it plays in our U.S. civic structure, situations that call for civil disobedience (protest/movements/resistance), and the possibilities of dialogue and deliberation as part of a participatory democracy. Using case studies for critical reflection, we will consider the complex dynamics of our civic landscape, the challenges of civility (and incivility), and the possibilities for cultivating more productive civil discourse around contentious issues in diverse contexts.

Course Title & Description:  Civil Discourse in a Democracy - From our classrooms to our social media feeds, and our living rooms to our legislature, the vibrancy of our democracy hinges on how we talk about issues, problems, and decisions that impact our communities. And yet, these complex conversations are often fraught with challenges that undermine productive civic life. We will contemplate the question: How do we talk about issues of common concern together to encourage more meaningful engagement? We will examine civil discourse in practice, including through our U.S. civic structure, adversarial models (protest/movements/resistance), and dialogue models (public dialogue/democratic deliberation/participatory democracy and collaborative inquiry). Using case studies for critical reflection, we will attend to the complex dynamics of our civic landscape, the challenges of civility (and incivility), and the possibilities for cultivating more productive civil discourse around contentious issues in diverse contexts.

Course Title & Description: Critical Studies of Disinformation - This course examines the sociotechnical dynamics of disinformation in contemporary society. As media scholars, we will explore the role print, broadcast, and digital media play in the creation and spread of disinformation and the corresponding implications for democratic society. We will consider key distinctions between related concepts including disinformation, misinformation, and malinformation. We will also highlight the challenges in identifying and labeling “false” information and explore how the identification of “truth” relates to broader struggles around the social construction of knowledge. Our review of these concepts will be informed by history, culture, and politics, and we will pay particular attention to the ways social categories – including race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual identity – shape the dynamics of disinformation. In our investigations, we will look beyond the contemporary United States to consider the spread of false information in historical and global contexts. Finally, we will explore specific examples of disinformation and consider strategies for combating this complex and evolving social issue.
