Course Aims

This course aims to study the impacts of computer-mediated communication on the way we interact, use language and think about ourselves. It introduces theories from psychology, media studies and sociolinguistics to explain questions relevant to our everyday relationship with technology. Students will have the opportunity to analyse on-line interaction, both in the classroom and outside of it. Throughout the semester, students will do a project in which they analyse their own on-line interaction and experiment in participating in virtual communities.
