INSC 351 - Race, Gender and Information Technology

3 Credit Hours
Examines how expression of gender and race affect, and are affected by, information technologies. Course considers how information technologies interact with race and gender in various contexts: high-technology workplaces; classification and information organization; cultures of computing; and library and information-centered environments. The course is framed by two broad, interrelated concepts ― the expression of identity (individual and group) in cyberspace and the “digital divide,” and reviews theoretical background in the social studies of gender, race, technology, and knowledge.
