LIBR 3540: Race, Gender, and Information in Contemporary Society (Spring 2022)

LIBR 3540

The class presents a critical perspective to the presence of information technologies and social media in everyday life and investigates how race, gender, and information technology intersect to reinforce structural biases. By analyzing the discriminatory factors and perspectives that inform the formation of information technologies, students will gain insight into the ways they are used to perpetuate racism, misogyny, and misinformation, support the marginalization of historically underrepresented communities, and embody systems of power, authority, and control.

LIBR 3540 meets MW 12:15-1:30 pm online via Zoom.
