Title: The Dimensionality of Networks
Description: This class will introduce networks through at least two modalities, the first as a kind of social fact emerging through the actions of networked individuals; the second as a concept “good to think with,” a way of theorizing about the self and social life in an age of globalization and late capitalism. In other words, there is a circular logic to network thinking. Having established that networks are good to think with, “network thinking” becomes the basis for all kinds of social structures—from social networking software to 1-minute dating happy hours. Of course, it’s not too much to add that there’s a networked element to this, that our networked understanding networks, virus like, to other phenomena, until this understanding cascades into more-or-less universal assumptions about the way our life works.
