MCOM 381 - Desire and Technology


(3 S.H.)

This course will show how virtual worlds can change ideas about identity and society. The student will study facets of Second Life, [how the residents create communities, buy property and build homes, go to concerts, attend weddings and religious services, buy and sell virtual goods and services, find friendships, fall in love - the possibilities are endless, and all encountered through a computer screen.] The rigor of critical review will be brought to the new frontier of second life, including issues of gender, race, sex, money, conflict and antisocial behavior, the construction of place and time, and the interplay of self and group. WSU e-Learning Center Second Life will be utilized for demonstrations.
