The internet is an essential technology that touches virtually every aspect of our lives. Since its introduction in the early 80s, it has grown widely and transformed how we work, learn, and communicate. How does this critical piece of global infrastructure work, and how is it governed? What implications did its arrival have on how we interact with one another and participate in society? In this course, we will explore topics related to the structure and origins of the internet, the legal frameworks and business models that shape how we experience it, its transformation of the public sphere, and its potential to both reduce and exacerbate inequalities.

Held for new first year students
