Trust and Transparency In The Information Society
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.
