This semester just properly started with our program’s orientation meeting today. It’s great to see so many new and familiar faces!

I’m teaching a new to me course this semester: DIKULT251: Critical Perspectives on Technology and Society with Bachelor Thesis, and I’ve just completed the schedule for the semester. There are still some gaps to fill in, though. Luckily, it’s a perfectly-sized seminar class, with around 12-15 students, we’ll be able to adapt our discussions to the students’ interests.

I’m combining general social media theory with digital methods workshops from the Digital Methods Initiative in Amsterdam, and am excited about this practical aspect to the course. More details on that will follow.

I’m sure a lot of ideas from the course will leak into this blog, and vice versa. If you have any ideas or suggestions, let me know!
