Communication:Analog & Digital

Communication: From Analog to Digital and Back Again
In this seminar we will undertake an interdisciplinary study of the nearly ubiquitous process of communication—that is, the transmission and receipt of information. This will run the gamut from oral to written to digital language; from humans to cells to subatomic particles; from hearing to sight to touch; and from its first origins into the modern day. Throughout, we will observe the interplay between the analog world in which we physically live and the increasingly digital world that humanity has created through modern technology, and we will attempt to gain a larger perspective on the transformation that has taken place, along with its effects. 3 hrs sem.
