In 1986 Robert Calvert articulated a generation’s relationship with technology in the song “On Line”: I just key in the password/ and it’s me who gets the last word/ when I’m on line.”  Years before new media and technologies allowed for virtually unlimited connectivity, the song anticipated today’s web-dominated life, where we form digital identities that both complement and complicate our public personas.  This course is centered around a discussion on how the music, videos, art, social networking sites, and other cultural products we engage online shape the people we are and the communities we help create.  These ideas will be exercised in a workshop format where students can express their ideas using digital platforms that enable innovative academic approaches and cultivate skills necessary for a career in the 21st century.
