Trust & Transparency In The Information Society

Notes:
What do we value in life, and how does that influence how we create, share, understand, and use information? This course will explore three everyday information values: transparency, trust, and agency. We will apply these three everyday information values to three important contexts within the information society: science, politics, and mass media. This course will be particularly relevant to students in information studies, communication studies, radio-television-film, journalism, anthropology, sociology, psychology, philosophy, management information studies, and public policy.
