Y210 Politics of the Internet

 

 

Course Description

This is an undergraduate honors seminar designed to foster original research by students.  It identifies the issues, stakeholders, and forums for debates over political issues connected with the Internet (and related information and communications technologies).  We will be reading books and articles by authors who have thought deeply about these questions and will be conducting our own research on some issues.  Among the issues to be considered are: the domain name system, restrictions on the use of file-sharing software, privacy, e-commerce, and net neutrality.
