Buchanan Library Fellows Project

Buchanan Library Fellows Project, Spring 2020

Ethics of Information

Even before we learn to read, humans consume information through a variety of formats – children's books, fiction and non-fiction, academic scholarship, and more. The internet has made the consumption of information easier than ever, but also brings with it issues related to access, privacy, and ethical concerns. In this seminar, fellows will explore issues related to technology and ethics by examining a variety of information genres and discussing strategies for engaging with information in its many forms with a critical eye. Using a variety of formats (such as a podcast, presentation, or video Public Service Announcement), Fellows will create final projects that analyze issues related to ethics and privacy.
