A Cultural History of Digital Technology

An eighteen-month interdisciplinary faculty and curricular development project focused on placing digital technologies in cultural, historical, and philosophical context.

New York City College of Technology (CUNY) proposes an eighteen-month interdisciplinary faculty development project designed to equip faculty from both STEM and humanities disciplines with an understanding of the cultural, historical, and philosophical dimensions of three major contemporary technologies that are focal points in our curriculum: geospatial technology, digital fabrication, and robotics. A Cultural History of Digital Technology will engage prominent theorists who work at the interface of technology and culture with City Tech faculty in situating these particular technologies in a cultural and historical framework so that they are understood both as expressions of cultural values and as technological innovations. The broad aim of this project is to equip faculty and ultimately our students not only with technical knowledge and specific skills sets but with a broader vision of the rich interplay between technological developments and specific cultural contexts.
