COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course will explore a series of leading Internet issues via a number of traditional and not-so-traditional methods. The course themes will include: whether the internet will ultimately allow for genuinely new kinds of communication or merely replicate what exists elsewhere; whether and how the internet can be governed, and whether the internet threatens traditional governance of real space; and the role of technical solutions to seemingly legal problems. The course is designed to be accessible to both internet experts and newcomers.

No specialized technical knowledge required. Cross-registrants welcome.
