Welcome to DIG 215

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?

In DIG 215 we will consider these questions and many more as we wrestle with the meaning of death in the digital age. You are now on the course site for the Spring 2017 version of DIG 215. The three most important documents here (so far) are the course guidelines, grading specifications, and weekly calendar.

More—including assignments and posts from students—will appear here soon…
