Advanced Seminar: Information Policy


This doctorate level seminar course will investigate information policy, particularly in respect to its relationship to American democracy and its impacts on core values of the information profession. Issues such as privacy, intellectual freedom, and intellectual property will be explored at length, beginning with the origins of intellectual thinking in these broad areas. In addition, we will examine the policy process and its various stages, along with its influences and roadblocks. The course will review various political perspectives and government levels, international information policies and information flows, and will also include a strong focus on the historical and contemporary impacts of technologies on these topics.
