Cognitive Science, History, Information, or Media Studies

In weeks 3 and 4 we’re at a point in this course where we are looking at the modern development of the relationships between information, culture, and society and information and popular technology. Whether we are looking at the development of concepts like science, information organization, and publics or actual forms of popular technology such as photography, the telegraph and telephone, the radio, film, and television as well as associated popular concepts such as intellectual property, advertising, and propaganda. In all of this we can see interrelationships that form between concepts and technology. These interrelationships are fundamental not only to the history of information but also continue shaping our own interactions with information to the present.

1. choose a particular perspective from this course (Cognitive Science, History, Information, or Media Studies) that you explicitly identify and then analyze a relationship between a particular popular technology (photography, the telegraph and telephone, the radio, film, and television) and a popular concept (intellectual property, advertising, and propaganda). An example is looking at the use of advertising in television to appeal to a particular public (Apple or Windows ads let’s say) and considering what one of the perspectives we’re using in this course could tell us about this. [NOTE: THIS IS A MORE DIFFICULT QUESTION]
2. analyze how a popular technology (photography, the telegraph and telephone, the radio, film, and television) influenced the development of a popular concept (intellectual property, advertising, and propaganda). NOTE: YOU CAN CHOOSE AS MANY OF THE TECHNOLOGIES AND CONCEPTS FROM THIS WEEK AS YOU’D LIKE.
3) examine how a popular concept (intellectual property, advertising, and propaganda) influenced a popular technology (photography, the telegraph and telephone, the radio, film, and television)
