Internet Transformations - ARIN2610

Year - 2018

The Internet is an infrastructure that supports constant industrial and social change, while also becoming progressively integrated into the routines of everyday life. Internet Transformations critically examines the online technologies, platforms and industries at the heart of these changes. It introduces key skills in analysis, evaluation and critique of these objects, situated in a historical context. It also interrogates the implications of emerging internetworked phenomena such as the internet of things, augmented reality and algorithmic cultures.
