    DMS480: This course will consider the theory of networks from a number of different perspectives, from computer networks to personal networks and the place where they intersect in social media. How do computer networks work? What are the promises and perils of an increasingly networked age? Does the imperative to establish connections paradoxically end up leaving us feeling even more disconnected? How can we understand the new kinds of politics that have developed on both the left and the right in an age of online activism? Students will develop their ability to think critically about the participatory technological networks that we are constantly immersed in.
