FYS Section A27. History and Culture in the Digital Age
Big Data. Social Media. Mobile Devices. Electronic Books.
Digital devices and applications have become ubiquitous in the cultural experiences of well-to-do people in developed economies, and commentary on their cultural effects has kept pace. We will explore continuities and differences between our own era and those that have gone before, asking such questions as: Can print and e-text co-exist? When is a fact (not) a fact? Is there wisdom in the crowd?
