Professor Martin Irvine
Communication, Culture & Technology Program
About the Course: Description, Motivation, Objectives
This seminar introduces major topics of current interdisciplinary research and theory on human meaning systems (semiotics) and the nature of symbolic and cognitive technologies (media, computation, and communications). The course will be led as a research seminar with students developing their own weekly and ongoing research and contributing their own findings and discoveries in the class sessions. We will use the seminar as a learning lab where we will map out the major interdisciplinary questions and research areas and ways to apply them to our core concerns in CCT.
