Power and Politics in Cyberspace (Lecture)
POLSCI 390-3-05 / PUBPOL 290-05
Robert Allred

As the title of the course suggests, power and politics in cyberspace will be focused on how the major players in cyberspace seek to exert control over and through digital mediums. Topics will include interstate rivalry in cyberspace, the fake news phenomenon, net neutrality, online surveillance/privacy, and other related topics. Rather than focusing exclusively on substantive questions about the history of power in cyberspace, students will grapple with emerging norms in cyberspace and policies that maximize what is good about emerging networking technology while mitigating its negative effects.
