This class explores the intersection of death and technology. What’s the 21st century equivalent of a haunted house? What kind of ghosts inhabit our machines? How does technology change grieving? Where do our digital identities go when we die? What happens when technology itself dies? We will consider these questions and many more as we wrestle with the meaning of death in the digital age.
