CAST 312 - Cultures of Surveillance

FC ARHU CD WADV
4 credits
Open to sophomores and above, this seminar examines surveillance as an omnipresent force in the United States. From CCTV to biometric scans, we will explore the impacts of surveillance technologies on different communities, paying particular attention to the vastly unequal and oppressive impacts on marginalized and vulnerable groups. We will also explore counter-surveillance practices by journalists, writers, and artists, and other cultural activists who often use these same technologies to expose, denounce, embarrass or contest state actions.
Prerequisites & Notes: CAST 100, 200 or equivalent.
