CyberPower

 

Course Overview: The course is used to provide both a general and brief introducton to cyberspace and syberstudies as well as a more specific survey of identity and embodiment discourses within cyberstudies. Embodiment discources within cyberstudies have been particularly used to discuss the ways in which cyberspace serves as a medium through which new forms of power are exercised. If Donna Haraway is correct about power in late capitalism, new forms of power contribute to the construction of new subjects vulnerable to new and more insidious exercises of power. "Texts" for the course include: cyberstudies and governance scholarship, film, fiction, fieldtrip, and cyberspace itself. The texts are largely used in order to "visualize" the body (the gendered, raced, sexed, classes body) and to reconside flows of power in cyberspace.
