My name is Caitlin Murphy, and I am a senior double majoring in History and Digital Media Studies. I initially signed up for the History of the Information Age because I am very interested in digital media. Not just how it is used now or how it can be used in the future, but also it’s evolution and history. I’ve taken several digital media classes, but never within the context of history, and I wanted to explore that aspect of it. I also enjoy learning the way we have been integrating interesting (but sometimes seemingly useless) modern technology into our culture for ages, and how this has changed the way life is today. Exploring the history of film and propaganda would be fascinating as well.
