Technologies of Friendship
This course investigates the technologies that enable friendship as a component of ethical life. Working with a trans-historical perspective- from ancient Greece to contemporary networked culture, from writing letters to making txts and sharing flickr sets—we’ll read, think, and write about the ways in which available technologies structure and define the relationships that comprise our inner experience. Using friendship as a focus and technology as a methodology, we’ll strive to read slowly and critically, think carefully and rigorously, and write creatively and clearly.
