What does it mean to have a voice on the internet? How should we understand new structures of privacy, sociability, and responsibility in a radically connected society? We'll develop these questions, discussing current scholarship on society and communication in the internet connected age. And we'll learn the fundamentals of web development, using HTML and CSS, along with some very basic programming, to visually shape discourse on the web. We'll emphasize designing for generated content like blogs. We'll also work on writing for internet messages. The program will emphasize the persistence of communication through adaptation and advocacy.
