The last several weeks of the course explore emerging communication technologies and how they impact our understanding of identity, privacy, intimacy, and capital. The internet and its various offspring have forced us to reconsider whether or not a person can also be a brand, who or what can be bought and sold as a commodity, the kinds of connection upon which a relationship can be built, and whether or not citizenship precludes a right to control one’s visibility. Consider the following questions:
Whereas history may have offered straight-forward answers to these questions, the future offers no such certainty.
The purpose of this assignment is for you to explore Internet Communication Technologies (ICT) in contemporary social life through a single podcast episode OR a research paper. If you choose the podcast option you will brainstorm, research, plan, and produce an 8-10-minute episode. If you choose the research paper option, you will write a 3,000-3,500 word essay. In order to create a compelling paper or podcast, you will need to narrow your focus to a single theme or set of questions; you have creative freedom here, as long as your topic falls within the parameters of ICT. Importantly, a podcast is not simply an essay that you record orally. You will only succeed in this option if you embrace the storytelling techniques that distinguish podcasts as a medium.
This assignment is divided into three separate components.
The outline is a one-page, single-spaced, typed memo that includes the basic elements of your project. Your outline should include the following:
The essay should be uploaded to Canvas as a pdf. You may use the citation format of your choice (e.g. APA, MLA…). Don’t forget to include a bibliography listing all sources that informed your essay. You must include at least six scholarly sources.
