Tweeting Into the Future

This course, open to all undergraduate students, and will focus on the ways technology, social media and race intersect. Particular attention will be paid to the uses of new media by communities of color (with emphasis on African Americans) and the innovative ways technology can create, maintain or challenge identities and stereotypes. As this is a class focused on technology, we will be using as much technology as possible as part of our learnings. This means we will be using FaceBook, Twitter, Google+, Prezi, YouTube and other media applications as part of the regular coursework. Students must be available on Wednesdays between 6-9pm for class (either in person or virtually, depending on the week).
