NM 142 - New Media History and Theory (4)

“New Media” may be understood as media that is dependent upon computers. This course traces the history of new media and its theoretical underpinnings, from the origins of computing in the first half of the 20th century to contemporary new media art and design. Students will read critical texts by artists, scientists, theorists, and philosophers, and will interpret these texts in various social, political, aesthetic, and ethical contexts through writing, class discussion, and artmaking.
