CSC 180M Technology and Dis/ ability

Course Description:

We humans use tools to enhance and augment our abilities; yet for every tool we create (consider the stair-step or the printed book) there are people with limited ability to use that tool.  Digital technologies have long been marketed as truly universal tools by which “everyone” has the abilities to find, analyze, create, and share information and ideas.  In this course, we will critically examine that universality, identify political and technical limitations to its realization, and explore ways to work around or through those limitations.
