DH Minor Spotlight: Internet: Playground and Factory

This is the next part in our series of spotlights on the Digital Humanities minor courses for Spring 2016:

Internet: Playground and Factory*

“This course explores the shift of labor markets to the Internet where the distinction between work, leisure, communication, and play has faded.  The course examines the violence of participation through the lens of examples of waged and unwaged practices (including Amazon.com’s Mechanical Turk, Txteagle, and Crowdflower.)”
