Class Sequence and Reading

This course will explore issues of information quality in mediated communication. How do people reach conclusions about the reliability, value, or authenticity of content? We will consider the problem across time, media and modes, from the coming of the book to the blog, paying particular attention to the interaction of technology, communicative forms, market forces, and institutional and legal frameworks.
