Lecture 6, 6/7

In this lecture, we will talk about digital technologies and the production of social inequality in their design and use. Our guest speaker, Christo Sims, will discuss these themes in the context of his research in a new public school in New York City that promotes “game-like learning” and being a “maker” of media and technology. Later in lecture, we will discuss the example of public access internet kiosks in parts of rural India. We will focus on how class, caste and gender shape¬† access to these kiosks as well as technology use within them.
