ENG 282 - Advanced Writing: Digital Controversies

In an electronic era, medium and message talk alike spark debate. Brownsville, Brooklyn police used Omnipresence, a video surveillance technology, leading one journalist to ask, “Sound policing, or stop and frisk by another name?” When Europe’s top court ruled that Google could be compelled to erase news articles about individuals, scholars wondered, “Should people have the right to be forgotten?” This course explores the different ways that writers discover, frame and deliberate digital controversies. Students will read and write about these controversies, honing their writing skills by composing and revising print essays, blogs, and digital essays in our workshop-centered course.
