Summer 2023 Courses: NWMEDIA 151AC

It's back! The popular NWMEDIA 151AC: Transforming Tech: Issues and Interventions in STEM and Silicon Valley will be offered once again this summer, this time online with Matthew Berry!

From the description:

In this course, we will study major tech industry controversies and heavily criticized tech products, policies, and effects, including technologies used at the U.S.-Mexico border, social media platforms’ spread of disinformation and fake news, racial bias in algorithms, and internet trolling and harassment. We will also examine tech companies’ long-running tendency to exclude women and non-Asian minorities, and how tech workers have occasionally come under fire for the industry’s harms. Students will be required to brainstorm and design their own interventions into the workings of the tech sector to make it more inclusive, equitable, and diverse.
