Skrócony opis:

The course tracks how the processes of datafication and mediatization shape contemporary societies. Within media and communication framework we will study how the intersections of technology and data effect the agency of particular users and social institutions.

Pełny opis:

The dynamic development of technology in the last decades has a critical impact on the society, culture and politics. It effects the everyday lives of individuals and social institutions. Media companies and digital platforms are the main spaces of social interactions. Hence, data that we produce using technology are the crucial outcome that fuels the contemporary economy.

In such a manner, the course tackles two interrelated processes. Firstly, datafication is understood as the process of translating practices and agencies of individuals and social institutions into digital data that are produced, collected, stored, analyzed and commodified. Secondly, mediatization is the process of media-related social and cultural transformations.

Since the effects of these processes are visible in politics, culture and economy, they require a critical investigation to capture the changing relationship between humans and technology.

Metody i kryteria oceniania:

Standards

1. You have to attend class. No matter what the reason is, you may skip only 2 meetings after the introduction class.

2. You have to be prepared, that is, be familiar with assigned readings and ready for the discussion. I don’t expect you’ll understand every assigned reading immediately, but I require that you’ll give a try.

3. Don’t raise your hand in class. I expect you to speak up when you have something interesting and contributing to say, but don’t speak over anyone and respect the opinions of others.

4. This is a media and communication course and you are expected to communicate and use digital media appropriately. Media misuse (texting, emailing) will rule you out of class.

5. You can contact me during my office hours (and by appointment) and via email (wojtkowski@umk.pl).

Grading

1. Participation in the discussion (10 points): active class participation and familiarity with readings

2. Tasks and problems (10 points): active in-group participation in solving the practice-oriented case studies.

3. Essay (10): 5 pages long critical essay on one of the selected topics.
