Description: The seminar will explore digital knowledge platforms (e-learning, publishing, crowd-sourced, etc.) that both disseminate knowledge and raise questions about what counts as expertise, who controls access to information, what power shifts from educational institutions to corporations, how quantification affects humanistic wisdom, and how academic autonomy and diversity are ultimately disrupted. Repeatable for Credit.
