Heidi,
I took a course like this at the New School Univeristy in the Village NYC about three years ago.
At that time we used "The Language of New Media" a great book about New Media By Lev Manovich.
 Here is the link to his website, I think he has a newer version of the book available.

Hands down th is the most comprehensive and culture based analysis of the digital media.

It will focus on social & cultural issues raised by communication and life in an information-based society. The dominant themes to be dealt with include: community, identity, authority/power relations and religion/ideology.  I have been trying to find a core text book for such a course but have been having difficulty.
