Is the Internet Colorblind?

 

Program Description:

Does having an abundance of information about race, gender, and sexuality change the decisions we make about their importance? How does having instant access to people from all over the world impact the ways we experience our own social location and our beliefs about others? How does our culture foster an online environment of misinformation? Finally, how might we use cyberspace to theorize these issues?
