CMM 432 - The Dark Side of the Internet

The internet and world wide web have dramatically changed the way we now live our lives. Many pundits, academics, and “regular-folks” extol the virtues of the digital domain. There is a dark side to the internet that many critics and theorists are now starting to discuss. Students in this class will explore, from an academic perspective, issues such as privacy, social media anxiety, data collection, and panopticon control to better understand the negative consequences of living life online.
