Current Course

In fall 2017, I am teaching INFO/STS 4240: Designing Technology for Social Impact. This course analyzes how social values are (often unconsciously) built into technology at design time and trains students in design methods for addressing social and cultural issues through design. It brings together the sociology and history of technology, technology design, and the arts. No technical background is required. This is a good course for anyone interested in the politics of technology, or in how to build technologies to make the world a better place.
