Information Technology and Social Justice -- beyond First World discourses

Merlyna Lim

TTh, 9:15 - 10:30am COOR L1-10

Merlyna Lim


This course provides an overview of contemporary debates surrounding the relationship between (1) new media and information and communication technology (ICT), particularly the Internet, and (2) socio-political changes. Attention is given to the multiple ways in which new media & ICT and individuals/groups/institutions -- mutually shape one another to the benefit and/or disadvantage of society and various social groups. It will include cases on cyberactivism (democratic and undemocratic), online un/deliberation, online global movement, networked publics, citizen journalism (e.g. blogging, podcasting), peer-to-peer production (e.g., YouTube), and remix culture/politics, derived not only from the Global North but also from the Global South.
