UVA's Department of Media Studies analyzes media culture, technology, labor, literacy, policy, infrastructure, and inequity. Our goal is to provide students with the tools to evaluate and shape media. With global reach, our faculty and students examine media from a variety of perspectives that include media history, aesthetics and form, audience analysis, media uses, the impact of media on public opinion, and the relations between media and the law.

Webinar: Ethical (Dis)Continuities

What can data ethics education learn from the history of teaching engineering and computer ethics? Or, perhaps more importantly, what should it learn? In this talk, Anna Lauren Hoffmann discusses some major themes in research and writing on engineering and computer ethics education and connects them to emerging discussions of how we ought to teach ethics in the context of data science education.
