    CRS 2023 Technoscience and Culture

    (Second Term 2005-2006)

Mr. Lik-kwan Cheung

DESCRIPTION:

We are now experiencing fast developments in technoscience in the modern world.

    As everything turns electronic and hi-tech, e.g., email, ebanking, ecommerce, plus the

    newly developed sciences such as cloning, biogenetic engineering, etc., it is important

    to introduce to students the ways technosciences and mass media bear on our sense of

    identity and subjectivity. The aim of this course is to help students make sense of

    different ramifications of contemporary technosciences which have unprecedentedly

    transformed their everyday life experiences, in other words, to introduce them to the

    study of technoscience culture. Through a body of fiction, films, T.V. shows,

    computer mediated communication devices, cybercultural forms (VR and AI), etc.,

    which deal directly with new communication technologies, this class will highlight

    the radical effects on the centrality of visual culture in the modern world, on the post-

    modernist self and on virtuality of all kinds.
