Hi, Carmen:

I teach the second chapter from Nancy Baym's Making New Media Make Sense for classes ranging from upper division to freshman. She outlines all of these concepts in a very accessible way.

Contact me off list if you need a copy to use; I'd be happy to share.

Warm wishes,

Dear fellows,

I have been struggling with the task of finding a simple short text for
undergraduates that introduces the approaches of technological determinism
(including utopia and dystopia) versus social construction of technology.
Since the theoretical terrain has since been enriched with actor network
theories and post phenomenology and so forth, it has become very hard to
find a text that doesn't complicate this basic framework which fits a
sophomore introductory level course. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
