I'm working on a communications Book Report and need a sample draft to help me study.
Please follow the directions listed here.
After you read the reading, answer the three questions below.
(Winner - Do Artifacts Have Politics).
Responses should be between 3-4 double spaced pages/850-1,000 words, Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, 1" margins.
In your own words, what argument does Winner make? Use specific examples from the reading to help you answer this question.
"Winner provides examples of technical systems of various kind which at first sight may not explicitly express any form of political intent, but have in reality been designed to produce concrete social consequences" (Imola, 2019). What is another example of a technological design that enforced a particular political agenda? Specify the technology (i. e. bridges over park ways on Long Island) and the political agenda that you think it enforced/enforces (i.e. limit access of racial minorities and low-income groups to Jones Beach). How does the technology enforce its politics? I am asking you to rely on your critical thinking skills to develop an answer to this question.
Does technology influence society or does society influence technology? Why? To answer this question, you might want to revisit past readings that discussed technological determinism versus cultural determinism.
Requirements: APA | Book Report | 3 pages, Double spaced
