ENG 125LR Living Well in the Digital World


The rapid development of digital media technologies has presented new challenges and opportunities for the pursuit of eudaimonia, or happiness, a foundational concern of Western philosophy and one enshrined in the Declaration of Independence. This course investigates the classical traditions of happiness and current challenges with living well in our heavily mediated, digital culture. In particular, the course considers the role that design plays in how we experience technologies and then expands that lens to examine how these technologies will affect the future of work. Students will encounter and discuss these issues, conducting experiments that encourage them to rethink how they interact with digital media and considering how design practices from product design to the organization of online communities and the development of individual habits might help them to "live well".This course is the same as CL 125 and DMS 125, and course repeat rules will apply. Students should consult with their major department regarding any restrictions on their degree requirements.
