Still image from the film Desk Set
Computing technologies have become pervasive in contemporary society. Critical reflection on the relationship between society and technology, with an eye towards the social meaning and consequences of emerging computer technologies, is therefore as necessary as it is timely.

This series reflects on the social aspects of computerization, including the role of computing technology in social and organizational change, the personal and societal uses and effects of information and communication technologies, and the influence of social values and practices on the organization and design of information technologies.

The film series is supported by IU’s Rob Kling Center for Social Informatics, School of Informatics and Computing, Cyberinfrastructure for Network Science Center, and IU Cinema. Screenings are free, but ticketed.
